Note to ADIL Users

Due to a hardware failure and some outdated software, the ADIL is temporarily down. I am working to bring the library back up on a new system. I apologize for this extended interruption. I greatly appreciate your patience as I work to restore operations as soon as possible. I will be alerting authors when service is returned. Ray Plante ADIL Librarian

Who and What is the ADIL?

The purpose of the Astronomy Digital Image Library (ADIL) is to collect astronomical, research-quality images and make them available to the astronomical community and the general public. Patrons access the Library through the
World Wide Web (WWW) to search for and browse images. Once images are located in the Library, users may download them to their local machines in FITS format for further analysis.

The Library provides a number of benefits not only to those looking for images, but also to those who add images to the Library's growing collection. For more on what the ADIL is all about, check the introduction to the ADIL User's Guide.

The Library is being developed and maintained by the Radio Astronomy Imaging Group at the National Center for Supercomputing Application (NCSA) on the campus of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC). Support has come from:
