User Registration for the Spitzer Heritage Archive

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

On the other hand, if you have proprietary data, you will need to log in so that the system grants you access to your data. If you got email from the Spitzer 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 Spitzer 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.
