Cooperative Community Opportunities and the ADS

Thompson, Donna; Grant, Carolyn

The ADS is used daily by the astronomy community and benefits from the cooperative nature of our contributors. In this poster we will outline some of the ways that the library community can continue to contribute to this resource. While most of what we receive is vetted before it gets to us, we sometimes find ourselves in the position of having to determine whether or not an article, proceeding or other submission is refereed. ADS has guidelines on how we determine this but sometimes the lines are not so clear. . . and sometimes the arguments on both sides are compelling. The process that we follow will be outlined and we would appreciate feedback on this topic. As online publishing trends continues to evolve, conference proceedings and presentations, PhD theses and other digital artifacts are being deposited to research data repositories such as Zenodo or Dataverse. We will describe the process that ADS follows to include relevant collections from such repositories when properly curated by librarians or researchers.
