The Astrophysics Data System (ADS) is a NASA-funded project which maintains three bibliographic databases containing more than 4.4 million records: Astronomy and Astrophysics, Physics, and ArXiv e-prints. The main body of data in the ADS consists of bibliographic records, which are searchable through the Abstract Service query forms, and full-text of some of the astronomical literature which can be browsed though the Browse interface. To activate our MGet It (formerly SFX) services, choose "Open URL Settings" from the ADS "Preferences" page: http://adsabs.harvard.edu/cgi-bin/pref_set Select "Library Server" for "University of Michigan" and save. This is a cookie-based system, so settings will be removed when you delete cookies. Coverage is typically (but not always comprehensively) back to 1975, with some coverage of pre-1975 years.
