One of the important parts of the astronomy digital library is access to on-line data. The Astrophysics Data System (ADS) plays an important part in providing access to such data by linking from the published literature to related data sets. There are currently over 175,000 links to on-line data in the ADS. These links allow the user to directly access the data that are related to an article. We currently provide links to the following data centers:

\noindent Astronomical Data Center, Goddard Space Flight Center\\ Astronomy Digital Image Library, NCSA, Urbana-Champaign, IL\\ Centre des Données astronomiques de Strasbourg, France\\ Chandra Data Center, Harvard-Smithsonian CfA, Cambridge, MA\\ European Southern Observatory, HST Proposals, Muenchen, Germany\\ European Space Agency, ISO, Muenchen, Germany\\ European Space Agency, IUE (several mirror sites)\\ Space Telescope Science Institute, HST Proposals\\ Space Telescope Science Institute, Multimission Archive\\ University of Massachusetts, Amherst, MA\\ University of Lausanne, Switzerland\\

We encourage all organizations that have on-line data to provide us with the information necessary to install links from the ADS to their data. For information on how to implement such links please contact the first author at gei@cfa.harvard.edu

The ADS is funded by NASA Grant NCC5-189.
