The forthcoming ASPCS volume, ``Structure and Dynamics of Globular Clusters'' (expected publication date: early summer of 1993) will contain a set of appendices with data resources on Galactic globular clusters; the authors of these papers include I.R.~King, S.~Peterson, C.T.~Pryor, S.C.~Trager, and ourselves. From these papers we have compiled a data base of various observed and derived parameters for globular clusters (143 of them at last count). Our main purpose is to use these data for correlative studies of globular cluster properties. Others may find it useful for similar purposes, for planning and support of observations, for testing of theoretical models, etc. We will describe the data base, and present some simple analysis of the cluster properties and correlations among them. The data will be made available to the community in a computer form, as ASCII files. Interested users should send an email message to the Internet address: $george @ deimos.caltech.edu$, and may also find the above mentioned ASPCS volume useful in their work.
We thank our colleagues who contributed data for this compilation for their efforts. S.D. acknowledges a partial support from the NASA contract NAS5-31348, and the NSF PYI award AST-9157412.
