The rich data archive from the Spitzer cryogenic mission will be comprised of approximately 25 TB of data. A five-year warm mission would add an additional 15-20 TB. All of these data will be processed and archived to form homogeneous, reliable database to support research for decades after the end of the Spitzer mission. The SSC proposes a robust archival research program during the warm mission phase. A sampling of possible archival programs are described.
