I'm looking to make a simple, personal, research database in OSX. Ideas?

I'm looking for a way to create a simple and easily-expandable research database, indexed by cross-referenced subjects. It'll be almost all PDFs and Word documents, ideally tagged with a number of subjects and topics, so that I'll have a simple and ever-growing index of subjects, like the index of a book, with articles and stuff tagged and cross-referenced to these subjects; that is, you select a subject or topic and are presented with a list of all the documents tagged with that subject. Ideally it'll be simple to grow this to encompass loads and loads of material over time. Sorry if this is a stupid and/or obvious question. (I use OSX.)
