Aldrich FT-IR Vapor Phase Library 5,010 FT-IR spectra; contains gas phase spectra collected by Aldrich using a GC interface to ensure chromatographically pure samples. 
Aldrich FT-IR Condensed Phase Library 18,500 FT-IR spectra; this collection contains the most common chemicals found in the Aldrich Catalog Handbook of Fine Chemicals. Acquired by Aldrich and processed by Nicolet, this is the largest collection of spectra collected entirely by FT-IR instrumentation. 
Aldrich FT-Raman Condensed Phase Library 14,033 FT-Raman spectra; includes spectra of common chemicals, representatives of major functional groups and combinations of functional groups, which are most likely to be observed in academic chemistry laboratories. 
AntiBase AntiBase is a world class collection of information relevant to the identification of microbiological natural compounds conveniently stored in a database system. The datafields are rich and information retrieval is easy.. 
> 20.000 compounds

The data in AntiBase have been collected from the primary and secondary literature and then carefully checked and validated. AntiBase includes descriptive data (molecular formular and mass, elemental composition, CAS registry number); physico-chemical data (melting point, optical rotation); spectroscopic data (UV, 13C-NMR, IR and mass spectra); biological data (pharmacological activity, toxicity); information on origin and isolation and a summary of literature sources

BMRB Biological NMR Data The BMRB database contains NMR chemical shifts derived from proteins and peptides, reference data, amino acid sequence information, and data describing the source of the protein and the conditions used to study the protein. In constructing the database, proteins and larger peptides have been given priority. Shift assignments for hemes, cofactors, and substrates of a protein are also included, when they are reported as part of a complex. The July 31, 1995 release of the database contains over 94,000 unique chemical shifts including more than 6,000 13C shifts and
4,000 15N shifts. An additional 30,000 stereospecific ambiguous chemical shifts are available. The present form of the database is described in the publication "A Relational Database for Sequence-Specific Protein NMR Data", B.R. Seavey, E.A. Farr, W.M. Westler, and J.L. Markley, J. Biomol. NMR 1, 217-236 (1991).

Sadtler Condensed Phase IR Standards Database The Sadtler Condensed Phase IR Standards Database is the world's largest database of infrared reference spectra of organic compounds, containing data on 75,620 different chemical compounds. Sadtler has added to the collection to  ensure that new and exciting compounds are available to the infrared community, joining the thousands of classical organic compounds and chemical building blocks. 
Sadtler Vapor Phase IR Standards This database is a collection of 9,200 vapor phase spectra of pure compounds. The database is made available for GC-IR and TGA-IR applications. The compounds were examined at temperatures ranging from 25 °C to 300 °C, depending on the vaporization temperature required for the particular compound and its chemical stability. Thermally sensitive compounds such as esters and acid chlorides were measured at the lowest possible cell temperature to reduce oxidation or thermal decomposition while the reference spectra were being measured.
