I package the cb2bib program which I find excellent. It has a number
of features that other software has, but it can parse reasonably well
a library of pdf files and extract data from them.

Plus it will listen to the clipboard and when text is selected, it
will parse that text and automagically create a new BibTeX record.

Duplicate entries are detected provided it is asked to do so.
