    I currently use plain TeX. I'd like to use BibTeX for my dissertation. 

The file you want is btxmac.tex.  You can get it directly from CTNA:

The essential interface is the same as from LaTeX -- \cite, \nocite,
\bibliography, \bibliographystyle.  There are lots of comments at the
top of btxmac.tex about how to customize it if you have the need.

btxmac is also part of Eplain (http://tug.org/eplain).  Here's a link to
the part of the Eplain manual that talks about the bibtex support:

If you have further questions or suggestions, the Eplain list is the
best place for discussion -- tex-eplain at tug.org.

Happy citing,
