From the American Mathematical Society, an easy to search database of reviews, abstracts and bibliographic information covering the mathematical sciences literature.
MathSciNet contains direct links to original articles. Bibliographic data from articles dates to the early 1800s. Reference lists are collected and matched internally from journals, and citation data for journals, authors, articles, and reviews is provided. Coverage: early 1800s to present.
Good for interdisciplinary subjects, searching for authors and tracking down citations
