Abstract: Creating a Science Archive that allows archival researchers to discover and retrieve the data they can use helps maximise the scientific return of an astronomical facility. Parallel to the construction of the hardware of the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA), which is expected to finish in two years from now, the ALMA Science Archive (ASA) is also being built. We present here its design, optimized for scientific discovery of multi-wavelength datasets, as well as the integration with the Virtual Observatory (VO).
