bibweb is a utility for automatically retrieving bibliographical
information from the American Mathematical Society's MathSciNet
program.  John Palmieri ("engineer") wrote bibweb, and Bill Dwyer
("idea man") helped to design it.

If you're too lazy to go to the library or use a web browser to find
out bibliographical information for that ground-breaking paper you're
writing, you can let bibweb do the work for you.  You have to use
bibtex (which means you have to use latex, I think), and you have to
write citations in a particular format, but that's about it.

See the file 'INSTALL' for installation instructions.

See the file 'HOW_TO' for directions on the use of bibweb.

bib­web – Au­to­mat­i­cally re­trieve bib­li­og­ra­phy from MathS­ciNet

A util­ity to au­to­mat­i­cally re­trieve math­e­mat­i­cal bib­li­o­graph­i­cal in­for­ma­tion, in BibTeX for­mat, from the Amer­i­can Math­e­mat­i­cal So­ci­ety‘s MathS­ciNet database. More pre­cisely, it acts as a front-end to BibTeX; it con­verts any ci­ta­tions that BibTeX can‘t find into queries to the MathS­ciNet database, it car­ries out those queries, and re­turns the an­swers in BibTeX for­mat. In­cluded in the pack­age are: the perl script bib­web, doc­u­men­ta­tion (in var­i­ous for­mats), and a test file.
