Current policy for data taken with OHP instruments grants principal investigators exclusive rights to their observations for a 2-year period (although this period can be extended for long-term projets). Thereafter data are normally made available to the astronomical community. Until 2003 access to spectra taken with the ELODIE spectrograph was indirect. Prospective users had first to consult a list of available observations and then e-mail OHP so that the relevant data be sent to them on CD-ROM or made available by FTP.
This on-line archive currently holds more than 30000 spectra, of which roughly one-half are freely accessible, with more than 6600 different identifiers, although the number of different objects may be smaller. Note that data taken with OHP instrumentation are normally the property of Observatoire de Haute-Provence (CNRS).
Additions as of April 2006:
New features made available in December 2005:
Features available since September 2004:
The archive is still under active development. The user interface may be modified and new data products be made available. We encourage all users to e-mail their comments and suggestions to the development group (Jihane Moultaka, Philippe Prugniel, Caroline Soubiran, Sergio Ilovaisky and Mina Koleva).
The archive contains most of the data taken between 1994 and 2004. Soon it will contain all observations. Data marked with a protection period longer than 2 years are currently unavailable. We hope that they can be released in some form in the near future.
