    Question Is NASA ADS useful?

    Hi,

    I am developing a PDF manager I, Librarian, which works seamlessly with PubMed and PubMed Central. I use these repositories heavily for my work. However, I was coquetting with the idea to enter the world of physicists, because I found a wonderful resource called NASA ADS. Is this THE resource that you guys use? Would it be useful to have a PDF manager integrated with this service? Thanks for your comments.

    Absolutely useful. Tremendously useful. It is pretty much all I use.

    By the way, whether you decide to include it or not, thank you for providing very useful software to the larger community.

    Thanks for your answer. NASA ADS is obviously useful for astrophysicists, but what about particle physicists, or other branches of physics? In any case, I will probably start playing with its integration into I, Librarian, because they have a nice interface and can provide references in XML, often with direct hyperlinks to full text PDFs.

    the general relativity and high-energy physics community make extensive use of SPIRES and arXiv.
    your software looks very useful, thanks a lot!

    As you might expect, ADS includes Planetary Sciences and Solar Physics Journals. It also includes the APS journals as well as the SPIE conference proceedings, which covers a very large chunk of the non-astrophysics stuff. It also searches ArXiv and science education research journals.

    If you want to figure out how to interface with ADS, you can start here.

    Thanks for the resource. It looks straightforward enough. I will finish the transition of I, Librarian from beta to the release version, and then I will definitely look at ADS. I would appreciate getting some input on desired features of such integration. Literature mining must be very different in biology and physics .

    Awesome for referencing when joined with latex and bibtex.
