AbstractWe present LITTLE THINGS (Local Irregulars That Trace Luminosity Extremes, The Hi Nearby Galaxy Survey), which is aimed at determining what drives star formation in dwarf galaxies. This is a multi-wavelength survey of 37 dwarf irregular and 4 blue compact dwarf galaxies that is centered around Hi-line data obtained with the National Radio Astronomy Observatory (NRAO) Very Large Array (VLA). The Hi-line data are characterized by high sensitivity (<= 1.1 mJy beam(-1) per channel), high spectral resolution (<= 2.6 km s(-1)), and high angular resolution (similar to 6 ''). The LITTLE THINGS sample contains dwarf galaxies that are relatively nearby (<= 10.3 Mpc; 6 '' is <= 300 pc), that were known to contain atomic hydrogen, the fuel for star formation, and that cover a large range in dwarf galactic properties. We describe our VLA data acquisition, calibration, and mapping procedures, as well as Hi map characteristics, and show channel maps, moment maps, velocity-flux profiles, and surface gas density profiles. In addition to the Hi data we have GALEX UV and ground-based UBV and H alpha images for most of the galaxies, and JHK images for some. Spitzer mid-IR images are available for many of the galaxies as well. These data sets are available online.
