Provide information about resources and points of contact for multiwavelength observations involving the Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope Large Area Telescope (LAT). Coordinate multiwavelength observations needed by the science groups. Maximize use of supporting observations and minimize duplication of effort.

The IR-Optical-UV Connection - A Collection of Optical and IR Resources
The Steward Observatory optical monitoring program follows photometry and polarization for a number of blazars and makes data available to the public. Please visit their site HERE.
The SMARTS telescope (CTIO) optical monitoring site for Fermi blazars is HERE. This group monitors a selected list of Fermi blazars with data that are made public. Both light curves and photometric data are presented. - E. Ferrara
The Catalina Real-time Transient Survey has a regularly updated set of light curves for Fermi LAT blazars. These results can be found HERE. This survey also posts information about transients. The main web page is HERE.
The AKARI (ASTRO-F) Infrared source catalog is now available:
Please see THIS LINK
The Tuorla Observatory monitors a number of blazars and makes optical light curves available HERE
The KAIT telescope has white light (~R) monitoring of ~160 bright LAT Blazars. The light curves can be seen HERE
Monitoring of many LAT blazars is also done in four colors by the Goddard Robotic Telescope with results available HERE
