I use Papyrus (look at http://www.rsd.com/). It runs under dos/win3/win95
It is not free but the cheapest I know ($99 + shipping), imports several tens 
of formats, plus you can customize any format to exactly suit your needs (not 
very intuitive, but works).
And you can search, built lists formated for any journal style, import into 
almost any wordprocessor via the clipboard.

All the best
