This is a standard part of any TeX distribution and included in Gerben 
Wierda's very nice i-Installer driven TeX setup.

You'll want to start here:


download i-Installer and TeX-fat, or get it on a CD:


use Dick Koch's TeXshop as an initial front-end:


(perhaps moving to Jerome Lauren's iTeXMac, or something else later)

and you'll certainly want to get Michael McCracken's BibDesk:


and you may want to try the nifty ``Books.app'':


which will populate a books database from bar codes / typed in ISBNs 
and export to bibtex, saving one a world of typing.
