GOLDmine makes extensive use of the NASA/IPAC Extragalactic Database (NED) which is operated by the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, California Institute of Technology, under contract with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration.

GOLDmine acknowledges SLOAN for providing u,g,r,i,z and RGB images.
Funding for the creation and distribution of the SDSS Archive has been provided by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, the Participating Institutions, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, the National Science Foundation, the U.S. Department of Energy, the Japanese Monbukagakusho, and the Max Planck Society. The SDSS Web site is
The SDSS is managed by the Astrophysical Research Consortium (ARC) for the Participating Institutions. The Participating Institutions are The University of Chicago, Fermilab, the Institute for Advanced Study, the Japan Participation Group, The Johns Hopkins University, the Korean Scientist Group, Los Alamos National Laboratory, the Max-Planck-Institute for Astronomy (MPIA), the Max-Planck-Institute for Astrophysics (MPA), New Mexico State University, University of Pittsburgh, Princeton University, the United States Naval Observatory, and the University of Washington.

SDSS images have been created using the Montage software. Montage is funded by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration's Earth Science Technology Office, Computation Technologies Project, under Cooperative Agreement Number NCC5-626 between NASA and the California Institute of Technology. Montage is maintained by the NASA/IPAC Infrared Science Archive.

V and/or B band images of CGCG 129025, 129027, 158071, 224039 are collected at Subaru Telescope, Okayama Astrophysical Observatory, Kiso observatory (University of Tokyo) and obtained from data archive at Astronomical Data Analysis Center, which are operated by the National Astronomical Observatory of Japan.

GOLDmine makes use of images from the ING data archive of CASU.

GOLDmine acknowledges the Two Micron All Sky Survey, which 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.

GOLDmine acknowledges UKIDSS for providing J,H,K images.
The UKIDSS project is defined in Lawrence et al (2007). UKIDSS uses the UKIRT Wide Field Camera (WFCAM; Casali et al, 2007) and a photometric system described in Hewett et al (2006). The pipeline processing and science archive are described in Irwin et al (2008, in prep) and Hambly et al (2008). We have used data from the second data release, which is described in detail in Warren et al. (2007).

We wish to thank all astronomers who contributed with their data to GOLDMine.

In particular:
the FOCA team (J.Donas, B.Milliard, M Laget, M. Viton) is acknowledged for UV fluxes made available prior to publication.

S.Sabatini and J.Davies of the Department of Physics and Astronomy, Cardiff University, for making their B-band images of the Virgo Wide Field Survey available to GOLDMine.

M.Treyer of the Laboratoire d'Astrophysique de Marseille for letting GOLDMine to use B-band images of galaxies in A1367 taken with the CFHT.

M.Yoshida of the National Astronomical Observatory of Japan for letting GOLDMine to use narrow and broad-band images of NGC4388 (VCC 836) taken with the Subaru telescope. These images are copyright of (C) 2002, National Astronomical Observatory of Japan / Suprime-Cam team

GOLDmine acknowledges the use of images from: "Palomar/Las Campanas Imaging Atlas of Blue Compact Dwarf Galaxies. I. Images and Integrated Photometry" (2003, ApJS, 147, 29) by Gil de Paz, A.; Madore, B. F.; Pevunova, O.

GOLDmine acknowledges the use of images from: "The H alpha Galaxy Survey I. The galaxy sample, H alpha narrow-band observations and star formation parameters for 334 galaxies" by P.A. James et al. (astro-ph/0311030)

Astronomers who are willing to have their material included in GOLDMine are encouraged to contact us.

GOLDMine will be regularly updated while new data will become available.
