The NOAO Deep Wide-Field Survey (NDWFS) is a very deep optical and IR imaging survey of 18 square degrees of the sky with the primary goal of studying the evolution of large-scale structure from z~1-4. The survey enables investigation of the formation and evolution of galaxies and the detection of luminous, very distant (z>4), star-forming galaxies and quasars. The 9.3 square degree Boötes sub-field of the survey is of particular interest because of the extensive multi-wavelength observations now available. These include imaging with Chandra (X-rays), GALEX (UV), Spitzer (near, mid, and far IR), the VLA, and Westerbork (radio). The optical (BWRI) and near-IR (K) processed images and object catalogues were released via the NOAO Science Archive (http://archive.noao.edu/nsa/) on October 22, 2004. We will review the properties of this data release and the most recent science results from the survey. Updates on the status and results of the NDWFS can be found at http://www.noao.edu/noao/noaodeep/.

Our research is supported by the National Optical Astronomy Observatory which is operated by the Association of Universities for Research in Astronomy, Inc., (AURA), under a cooperative agreement with the National Science Foundation.
