1880 - present For the literature from 1969 onwards, the ARIBIB is based on the information given in the printed bibliography 'Astronomy and Astrophysics Abstracts' (AAA). The AAA are a publication of the Astronomisches Rechen-Institut Heidelberg, produced in cooperation with the Fachinformationszentrum Karlsruhe FIZ (since 1988) and the Institution of Electrical Engineers IEE (since 1995). The AAA are prepared under the auspices of the International Astronomical Union. ####Much of the information given in the AAA is also available on-line in the databases INSPEC and INSPHYS distributed by STN/FIZ and by IEE . In contrast to the ARIBIB, the printed volumes of AAA and the on-line databases INSPEC and INSPHYS contain abstracts. ####For the older literature from 1899 until 1968, the ARIBIB is based on the printed bibliography 'Astronomischer Jahresbericht' (AJB). The AJB was a publication of the Astronomisches Rechen-Institut Heidelberg. ####For the old literature from ancient epochs until about 1880, the ARIBIB is based on the printed bibliographies published by J. C. Houzeau and A. Lancaster and by J. J. de Lalande.
