We present the results of a survey of archival data and catalogued objects in the region around the Southern Hubble Deep Field (HDF-South). The survey encompasses NASA mission logs, astronomical catalogs, and journal tables. The HDF-South was the focus of a dedicated HST observing campaign during October 1998. Many astrophysically interesting objects in the vicinity of the HDF-South, including quasars and clusters of galaxies, have been catalogued and observed at a wide range of wavelengths. The byproducts of this and similar user-selected surveys can be used to study classes of objects that may potentially be represented among the faint objects discovered within the HDF-S.

This survey was conducted using a suite of new data search, browse, and visualization tools available at the NASA ADC (Astronomical Data Center: http://adc.gsfc.nasa.gov/ ). These tools are described in other poster presentations at this meeting.
