[9.03] Linking From the ADS to Other On-line Resources

The NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS) currently provides free access to over 2.7 million records in four bibliographic databases through a sophisticated search interface. In addition to the basic metadata about a published paper, the ADS provides links to any relevant on-line resources, including full-text articles and published data tables. Similarly, an increasingly larger number of publishers and institutions are using the ADS to verify the existence and availability of references published in the scientific literature. To facilitate the exchange of metadata necessary to establish these links, the ADS is developing prototype Web Services based on emerging industry standards such as SOAP and WSDL as part of a collaboration with the major NASA Astrophysics Data centers. This collaboration is expanding the scope of the linking to and from the ADS considerably.

The ADS is funded by NASA Grant NCC5-189
