Краткое содержание доклада:
The Astrophysics Data System (ADS) is the search system of choice for Astronomers world-wide. The database contains almost 3 million records. In addition the ADS has over 2 million scanned article pages from about 280,000 articles, dating back as far as 1829. The ADS provides a search capability for the astronomical literature that is freely available world-wide. More than 10,000 users query the ADS regularly (10 or more times per month). The ADS is accessed from almost 100 countries. In order to improve access from different parts of the world, we maintain 9 mirror sites of the ADS in Brazil, Chile, China, England, France, Germany, India, Japan, and Russia.
