Abstract: The Chandra Data Archive is being extended to include the Chandra Source Catalog (Fabbiano 2007), consisting of a list of sources with their properties and their associated data products. The system supports periodic catalog releases as well as an evolving catalog with snapshots for any point in time. Catalog entries are associated with their corresponding observation-level data which can be accessed through catalog searches. In this paper we present how the existing archive architecture accommodates the new requirements for catalog storage, searches, interface with the processing pipelines, and access by external users.
