Abstract: DaRT is a client-side Java graphical user interface used for simultaneous retrieval of multiple documents and/or archived scientific instrument data sets which can be accessed via the World Wide Web. DaRT is currently used worldwide by astronomers to retrieve data sets from the BIMA Data Archive. DaRT can be configured to support data set retrieval from multiple data archives; an archivist can configure DaRT to support her archive simply by creating a short text file. Optionally, DaRT can support more features of an archive if more properties are added to this configuration file and/or by supplying an archive-specific Java class.
