Astrophysics Data System

(ADS, SAO/NASA Astrophysics Data System, Astrophysics Data Service)
(website with astrophysics bibliography and paper archive)

The Astrophysics Data System (ADS, aka, the SAO/NASA Astrophysics Data System, as near as I can tell, references to the Astrophysics Data Service refer to the same system: possibly it is an older name for it) is an online, searchable bibliography of astrophysics, plus an archive of astronomy/astrophysics papers that includes papers back to 1900 and before. ADS is run by the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics (CfA) essentially the Harvard College Observatory (HCO) and the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory (SAO) merged. NASA is a major funder of ADS, as part of its effort to make astronomy/astrophysics data available.
