At least for bib files, this works for me. TexLive looks for bib files in 
~/Library/texmf/bibtex/bib. I have papers and bibliography in ~/DropIt/myfiles/Papers 

So what I did in terminal is 
cd ~/Library/texmf/bibtex
ln -s ~/DropIt/myfiles/Papers bib

Now ‘bib’ in “~/Library/texmf/bibtex/" is a link to the directory where my bib file is

Hope it works for you too
