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 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.
