To aid organizations in obtaining information on the effectiveness of their telescopes, the AAS has created a vocabulary of facility keywords for telescope facilities for use in journal articles. The use of a common set of facility keywords across astronomical publications will make searches for telescopes significantly easier and more accurate. In addition, the facility keywords will be useful for linking papers that use the same telescopes together within the framework of the National Virtual Observatory.
This is an extended readme documenting my effort to get the AASTeX package to work with the OzTeX/Alpha system for the Mac.
