A significant fraction of the images are simply from private databases accumulated for specific research projects. Many are also from large, on-line sources such as the Ohio State University Bright Galaxy Survey (), the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS,, the Galaxy On Line Database Milano Network (GOLD Mine,, the NASA/IPAC Extragalactic Database (NED,, the Space Telescope Science Institute Digitized Sky Survey (DSS,, the {\it Hubble Space Telescope} archives (, and the {\it Two Micron All-Sky Survey} (2MASS). Funding for the OSUBGS was provided by grants from the NSF (grants AST 92-17716 and AST 96-17006), with additional funding from the Ohio State University. Funding for the creation and distribution of the SDSS Archive has been provided by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, the Participating Institutions, NASA, NSF, the U.S. Department of Energy, the Japanese Monbukagakusho, and Max Planck Society. NED is operated by the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, California Institute of Technology, under contract with NASA. The DSS was produced at the Space Telescope Science Institute under U. S. Government grant NAG W-2166. Observations with the NASA/ESA {\it Hubble Space Telescope} were obtained at the Space Telescope Science Institute, which is operated by the Association of Universities for Research in Astronomy, Inc., under contract NAS 5-26555. The {\it Spitzer Space Telescope} is operated by the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, California Institute of Technology, under NASA contract 1407. The {\it Two Micron All-Sky Survey} is a joint project of the University of Massachusetts and the Infrared Processing and Analysis Center/California Institute of Technology, funded by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration and the National Science Foundation.
