The AstroWeb database

The database is maintained by the AstroWeb Consortium , which will be pleased to accept contributions of new resource records, as well as reports of corrections to existing records.
Most of the URLs in the database are tested once a day to verify liveness (see AstroWeb "Dead URLs").
AstroWeb is available, under different presentations, at: CDS (these pages), Institute of Astronomy, Cambridge, RSAA, NRAO, STScI, VILSPA.
Mirror copies of the AstroWeb pages at the other places, updated daily, are also available here (CDS, Strasbourg) for network convenience:
CDS (these pages),
STScI (sorted by protocol), and
NRAO (sorted by category).
A Searchable version of this information (a WAIS index based on the description listed in AstroWeb, and on all the words actually found in each URL) is available at STScI and here, at CDS, Strasbourg:
The maintenance of the AstroWeb database of astronomical resources has been discontinued on 10 July 2010; its contents is still available but represents the status of Astroweb at that date.

The WAIS index at CDS is updated on a daily basis.
