Notes Site re-reviewed in the "Where Are They Now" section of the June 20, 1997 Scout Report: "When the Strasbourg Astronomical Data Center was annotated, it was noted for providing journal tables of contents and abstracts, searchable databases, and the AstroWeb meta-site of astronomical resources, among other features. These services are all still available at one of the earliest astronomical meta-sites. In recent months CDS has added a web interface to its Simbad (Set of Identifications Measurements and Bibliography for Astronomical Data) database of "about 1 million objects, for which 3.3 million identifiers, more than 1.5 million observational measurements and 1.4 million bibliographical references are available" (registration required, and the service is fee-based for some users). CDS users will soon have access to the Hipparcos and Tycho catalogs as well."
