Abstract: We have created a service on the World Wide Web for discovering astronomical software. Tools allow us to create a searchable index of documents distributed across the Web, rather than maintaining a centralized collection of documents. We have indexed astronomical software documentation, which is maintained directly by the software providers at their home sites. In addition, we also provide a uniform set of high-level package descriptions.
