On January 3, 1995, it was agreed that the Astronomy and Astrophysics pages in the WWW Virtual-Library at CERN, which are maintained by Sergio Paoli at La Plata, will be computed from the AstroWeb database, and that links in those pages which are not already in the AstroWeb database will be added to the database. Beginning April 3, the Virtual-Library pages are being computed from the AstroWeb database. 

The pages with the old format of the WWW-VL: Astronomy and Astrophysics are still available and continously updated.

AstroWeb: Astronomy/Astrophysics on the Internet

Welcome to AstroWeb – a collection of pointers to astronomy-related information available on the Internet. The database is maintained by the AstroWeb Consortium, a collaboration involving 9 individuals at 7 institutions. These CERN – La Plata AstroWeb pages are recomputed at about 06:30 UT each day, if the master database has been changed.
