Paper Abstract

A computer data base of infrared astronomical observations has been established at NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center. It contains a summary of all infrared (1μm-1000 μm) observations of celestial sources outside the solar system, published in the major scientific journals since 1960, as well as the contents of infrared surveys and catalogs. Catalog of Infrared Observations (CIO) has been developed from the data base in printed an magnetic tape versions. A bibliographic Guide to the Infrared Astronomical Literature, and an Atlas of Infrared Source Names and Positions will be published in conjunction with the catalog. Future plans include development of an interactive data system at Goddard which will give a user direct access to the computerized data.
