Abstract: The public science archive for the Extreme Ultraviolet Explorer (EUVE) satellite is now operational. The archive handles the storage, maintenance, and distribution of EUVE data and related documentation, information, and software. An additional objective has been to provide new and flexible user interfaces and services to the highly diverse electronic-based community. Some examples which are currently under investigation and/or development include a spectrum server via NASA's Astrophysics Data System, a distributed series of CD-ROMs, the use of various network tools running under X-windows (e.g. Gopher, WAIS and MOSAIC) to allow for convenient data browsing and retrieval, and interfaces to allow access to the raw telemetry and data processing software. This paper gives an overview of the existing system capabilities, describes activities currently under development, and outlines plans for the future. This research has been supported by NASA contracts NAS5-29298 and NAS5-30180.
