BIBWEB 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. This program is free software, distributed under the GNU General Public License; see the file 'COPYING' for more information.

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.
