Archival access

We anticipate that most users will access the HEASARC archive either by remote login or through the ADS client-server interface, and examine results and products databases before deciding whether they wish to analyze some set of data in more detail. Data retrieval to an observer's home institution will be handled by the electronic networks as far as is possible but in the event of large amounts of data being required, a less ephemeral medium of exchange will be used.
