The Astronomical Society of the Pacific is also publishing a subset of these data to the community on CDROM. They currently publish two products:

The Digitized Sky Survey which is a 10x compressed copy of the first epoch POSS-I Red and SERC-J Blue surveys on 102 CDROMs. This is primarily for Observatories, Astronomical Institutions and professional astronomers as this retains virtually all the detail in the original data.

Real Sky which is a 100x compressed copy of the first epoch POSS-I Red survey on 9 CDROMs, together with a an 11 CDROM set, based on southern SERC-J plates from the UK Schmidt. Both are suitable for amateur astronomers and educators.
