The HEASARC Users Group 1996

The HEASARC User's Group, HUG, has as its prime directive to "evaluate and monitor the performance of the HEASARC."

Other terms of reference and organization are as follows:

* Solicit input on the operation of the HEASARC from the astronomical community.

* Recommend guidelines for community access to the HEASARC.

* Provide help and information to the HEASARC on a wide range of disciplines relevant to its activities.

* Encourage interaction and coordination with other SARCs, both within and outside NASA.

* Review an annual report on the HEASARC activities and progress.

The HUG meets regularly and reports to the Chief of the NASA Astrophysics Science Operations Branch, Guenter Riegler, and to the HEASARC director, N.E. White. While the committee has been chosen to represent a range of users, institutions, and viewpoints, it cannot be complete. The HUG requests that HEASARC users in the community contact the members with comments, compliments, suggestions, and criticisms.
