Abstract: A large portion of the astronomical research of the 19th and early 20th centuries was reported in publications written and distributed by individual observatories. Many of these collections were not widely distributed and complete sets of these volumes are now difficult to locate. The ADS has taken on the effort to put these publications online and make them searchable. In this paper I will outline the project and discuss some of the highlights and challenges the ADS has encountered over the duration of the project.
