I'm looking to make a simple, personal, research database in OSX. Ideas? [more inside]
I'm writing a paper that involves reading forty articles by about thirty different historians. Their biographical details are relevant. I'd like to be able to enter information about these articles and their authors into a database (or something similar) and then be able to sort by the various categories, link entries together, easily have lists of all of the people or articles who fit a given criterium, et cetera. What should I use? Free or cheap, OSX-compatible, relatively low learning curve.
I need to keep track of my clients and the homes they purchased so that I can provide the best level of service to them after I have worked with them. Is that possible with any OSX software? (More inside!) [more inside]

Where can I find a citation database for OS X (and am I using the right term)? [more inside]
We're looking for a way to keep track of employees, clients, suppliers. Ideally, I'd be able to link to reference files (images, PDFs, spreadsheets) on the hard drive, print compact lists of entries, labels for contacts, and so on. [more inside]
Is there any program that runs natively on OS X that would allow me to work with a Microsoft Access database? Or am I doomed to run SoftPC? [more inside]
Is there any web site or program for OS X that allows you compile a list of your video games, similar to either DVD Aficionado or Books? Thank you MeFi!
