Finding Articles

  • Astrophysics Data System - WWW
    1982-present. The Astrophysics Data System (ADS) is a NASA-funded project whose main resource is an Abstract Service, which includes four sets of abstracts: Astronomy and astrophysics Instrumentation Physics and geophysics Los Alamos preprint server. Each dataset can be searched by author, object name (astronomy only), title, or abstract text words. of architect/designer and/or location and/or magazine.
    1969-current. Primary coverage is journal articles and papers presented at conferences, although significant books, technical reports, and dissertations are also included. Sources include more than 4,000 journals and more than 2,000 conference proceedings, books, and reports corresponding to the following publications: Physics Abstracts, Electrical & Electronics Abstracts, and Computer & Control Abstracts, as well as to the online INSPEC database.

Current Awareness

  • best resourceInternational Year of Astronomy 2009 - WWW
    The International Year of Astronomy (IYA2009) will be a global celebration of astronomy and its contributions to society and culture, highlighted by the 400th anniversary of the first use of an astronomical telescope by Galileo Galilei. The aim of the Year is to stimulate worldwide interest, especially among young people, in astronomy and science under the central theme “The Universe, Yours to Discover”. IYA2009 events and activities will promote a greater appreciation of the inspirational aspects of astronomy that embody an invaluable shared resource for all nations.
