dblp.org is a free resource that lists papers from conferences and journals (including online venues like arxiv) in CS.
It also generates pages for the authors which have a publication in these venues and lists all the papers by that author.
It also makes its entire dataset available as free for download.
I'm wondering if similar resources exist for other disciplines. Search engines like Google Scholar are different because you have to already know what you're looking for before you find it.
In contrast, on DBLP you can start with a particular paper, then see all the other papers by the author, be able to browse venues which you may not have known about and see papers from those venues, and so on.
