We have used EndNote Plus together with Endlink for Macs for quite awhile and
are very pleased with it.  You can create separate libraries of references, and
each "library" can hold up to 32,000 references. It is *very* reasonably priced
(about $200), fast at searching, can download references directly from an
online database such as Medline or from a disk update system, and (best of all)
inserts citations and formats bibliographies directly in your manuscripts for
you in whatever format you choose (especially useful for journals that want
citations numbered consecutively according to alphabetical order of authors). 
My postdoc was especially astonished when he watched me insert citations,
format, and create the bibliography for my NIH grant within a couple of hours. 
If you're interested, contact Niles Associates, Inc., 2000 Hearst St., Berkeley
CA 94709. (510) 655-6666.  I have no association whatsoever with this company
other than being a pleased customer.
