In this work, the authors motivate, describe, and announce a living bibliography for academic papers and other works published in the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI). The bibliography makes use of bibliographic groups (bibgroups) in the NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS), allowing it to be accessed and searched by any interested party, and is composed only of works which have a presence on the ADS. We establish criteria that describe the scope of our bibliography, which we define as any academic work which broadly: 1) advances knowledge within SETI, 2) deals with topics that are fundamentally related to or about SETI, or 3) is useful for the better understanding of SETI, and which has a presence on ADS. We discuss the future work needed to continue the development of the bibliography. The bibliography can be found ADS website (see References) or by using the bibgroup field (bibgroup: SETI) in the ADS search engine.
