In this whitepaper we advocate that the Planetary Science (PS) community build a discipline-specific digital library, in collaboration with the existing astronomy digital library, ADS. We suggest that the PS data archives increase their level of curation to allow for direct linking between the archival data and the derived journal articles. And we suggest that a new component of the PS information infrastructure be created to collate and curate information on features and objects in our solar system, beginning with the USGS/IAU Gazetteer of Planetary Nomenclature.
