The ADS team is working hard on updating its services and interfaces to better support our community's research needs. ADS Labs is a modern web platform built on the old tried-and-true ADS Abstract Databases, so all of ADS's content is available through it. ADS Labs currently features a single powerful interface that allows you to search, explore and visualize the contents of its 10 million bibliographic records and its 3.7 million full-text documents. We really think you should try it!
One-click search for all abstracts and full-text content in one single page
A new clever face for ADS, under active development
We are currently focusing our efforts on completing Bumblebee's features so that it provides the same functionality as ADS 2.0, after which the latter interface will be deprecated. Both systems use the same back-end search services, which provide support for new ranking options, filtering of results, interactive visualizations, recommendations; and impact evaluation via bibliometric summaries.

The older “streamlined search” interface in ADS Labs is still available for the time being, but its use is now deprecated.
