The NASA/IPAC Extragalactic Database (NED) is an electronic research tool which provides uniquely powerful access to published multi-wavelength data on extragalactic objects. It consists of a computer database with a broad range of published information, and a user interface which allows fast and flexible retrieval of the information via the Internet. It is accessible anonymously and free of charge to any account on the networks, and used primarily by researchers, students and librarians. NED is physically located at the Infrared Processing and Analysis Center (IPAC) on the Caltech campus in Pasadena, California (USA).
