The AVO has the potential to significantly change and improve the way astronomers can utilize data and conduct their research. In order to make this happen, the most important challenge of the AVO will be to enable astronomers to find what they need for their research. This will be more and more difficult the more data are included in the AVO. We believe that there already exists a search system that can be used as the basis for this search capability of the AVO. Properly utilized this basis will allow the AVO to much more quickly reach its goals.
