One of the key ways knowledge and advancements are documented and shared is through publications (journal, books, conference proceedings, etc.). There are already more than two dozen publications about the Psyche asteroid and NASA’s Psyche mission and by the end of the mission there will likely be hundreds more. To make these publications as useful as possible to scientists, engineers, and the public, a team is creating a solution to find, categorize, archive, and search the range of publications about Psyche.
