Abstract: We have imaged the dust emission in 37 starless and protostellar clouds and cores. These observations provide complementary information for the deep Spitzer images taken within the Spitzer Legacy Program "From Molecular Cores to Planet-Forming Disks". The dust continuum maps alone provide interesting constraints on the earliest stages of star formation. We find a number of cores that appear to be too massive to be supported against gravity by thermal and turbulent pressure alone. Our detailed modeling suggests that magnetic fields must also contribute to their stability.
