Abstract: The Chandra Data Archive (CDA) has been tracking publications in refereed journals and on-line conference proceedings that are based on Chandra observations since early in the mission. Over the years this database and its associated tools have expanded dramatically. In this paper we describe our newly renovated bibliography architecture with an emphasis on new features which have been added including: auto-scan capabilities to reduce in an automated fashion the number of papers which need to be manually classified and to flag keywords (such as observatory names or surveys) used within papers; multi-user classification allowing quality assurance checks; multi-observatory capabilities allowing multiple facilities to use the same database independently; and plug-in support allowing access to associated observatory data to more fully describe data links in papers.
