Finder Chart: User Registration for the IRSA Archives

There is one user registration for all archives housed at IRSA.

While you certainly do not have to register to search the archive, download data, analyze data, and write a paper, you may wish to register so that this archive remembers you, and your searches.

Finder Chart does not access proprietary data, so the main purposes for logging in would be so that it remembers you.

On the other hand, if you are trying to gain access to your proprietary data in a particular archive (other than Finder Chart), you will need to log in so that the system grants you access to your data. Not all archives served by IRSA have proprietary data. If you got email from an archive's Help Desk about account information, you may already have an account; else you can set up an account (see below). Once you have set up an account, please send us an email at the IRSA Help Desk and we'll tie your new account to your proprietary data.

Note that there is a single user account/password combination for all IRSA services, but that data access, preferences, search history, data tagging, etc., are all unique to each archive.
