Bibliographic software

You might want to look at Reference Web Poster, which
is a tool for putting databases from End-Note, Pro-Cite
or Reference Manager on the Web.

These three programs are specifically designed for
bibliographic data, and have tools for working with your word
processor for formatting citations in papers you're authoring,
as well as gathering bibliographic information from libraries'
catalogs and other databases like PubMed or others, depending
on what your organization has access to.  My personal favorite
is End-Note, primarily because it seems to work well with those 
databases our library has licensed.  Your mileage may vary of
course.  All three (End-Note, Pro-Cite, Reference Manager) are
now owned by the same company, and over time I would expect
to see the best features of each begin to merge into the others.

Filemaker would be a good choice if you plan to use the same
database program to do other things besides handling
bibliographic data or if the Web Poster program's Web server
requirements don't suit your environment.

Happy hunting...
