International Critical Tables of Numeric Data, Physics, Chemistry and Technology, 7 volumes and index (first electronic edition).
Originally published for the National Research Council, ICT offers data on physical, thermodynamic, mechanical, and other key properties.  Many tables are interactive. The full text of the original print version is available in PDF format.  Information has been indexed to allow fielded searches (example: find all alcohols with a boiling point between 50-100 Celsius).  Results can be manipulated in spreadsheet-like tables allowing you to sort and select only the information you need.

Knovel Critical Tables
Contains tables of physical, solvent, and thermodynamic properties. Each table is fully interactive and searchable by keyword and numeric property value.

Smithsonian Physical Tables (ninth revised edition)
Comprising 901 tables concentration on a broad scope of common physical and chemical data.  All entries in the index are hyperlinked to their page numbers.
