This is what I'm currently doing -

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
#+begin_src emacs-lisp
(defun carve-up4 ()
  (interactive)
  (delete-other-windows)
  (split-window-right)
  (other-window 1)
 (find-file "~/research/drugs/drugs17.bib"))
  
(global-set-key (kbd "M-s-v") 'carve-up4)
#+end_src
[2017-02-05 Sun 12:32]
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

But I want to be given the choice of -

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
~/research/death/death.bib
~/research/heating/heating17.bib

And others
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

Hence my need for something like a popup menu to show me my choices for
whatever project I'm moving on to.

Thanks
Sharon.
