The Sloan Digital Sky Survey is a world-wide collaboration in astrophysics with contributors from around the United States, Italy, and Japan. Collaborators need to have easy access to current information about the project and the on-going software development. The World Wide Web (WWW) and HTML (HyperText Markup Language meet this need admirably. Our use of the Web can be thought of as providing access to three distinct types of information: (1) the infrastructure of the project, (2) the documentation of actual software used throughout the project, and (3) access to Survey databases.

The layout of Web pages is not meant to allow the public to easily surf. Rather, the pages are laid out to permit collaborators to find information efficiently. In keeping with this goal, there is less emphasis on glitz and more on content.
