A searchable database of journal and contest math problems 
compiled by MathPro Press and hosted by the Department of 
Mathematics and Statistics at the Univ. of Missouri - Rolla. 

The database references upwards of 20,000 math problems from 
dozens of journals and contests, including the American 
Mathematical Monthly, the Journal of Recreational Mathematics, 
Mathematical Questions and Solutions from the Educational 
Times, and national and international mathematical olympiads. 

Search for problems by subject, keyword, source, problem 
number (this requires a publication source), year, proposer, 
solver, or author; or request a randomly served problem. 
Search or view comments, search commenters, and post your 
own comments on problems. You may also contribute problems, 
referring to the list of problems to determine which ones 
are needed. 

The site also outlines technical details of database 
publishing with TeX.
