Galaxies of the Local Group:

GALEX provided an unprecedented snapshot of the young stellar populations in galaxies, with sensitivity to the lowest star-formation rates ever detected. Star formation was discovered in sites where it was not seen nor expected before. here is a recent review
Hubble reveals in great detail how young stellar complexes form and evolve in different environments.

A Hubble Treasury study of star-forming galaxies in the Local Group (TrImS):
images, 6-band photometric catalogs, derived parameters, papers, from Bianchi's HST treasury program 11079

images of Local Group galaxies UV (GALEX) and optical (ground-based, HST)

PHAT Panchromatic Hubble Andromeda Treasury Survey (coming soon)

Other studies and images:
Magellanic Clouds (coming soon)

Beyond the Local Group:

Nearby Galaxies: Multi-wavelength surveys with GALEX, SPITZER, Hubble, ground-based images: see list of publications
