Telescopes and Instrumentation

The archive of the La Silla Paranal Observatory is a powerful scientific resource for the ESO astronomical community. It stores both the raw data generated by all ESO instruments and selected processed data. We present new capabilities and user services that have recently been developed in order to enhance data discovery and usage in the face of the increasing volume and complexity of the archive holdings. Future plans to extend the new services to processed data from the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) are also discussed.
