Galaxies in the IUE data set

The ULDA Access Guide No. 3 (Longo & Capaccioli 1992) included spectra obtained up to the 31st of December 1991. The availability of the IUE Final Archive, and of INES, along with the additional information collected until the cessation of IUE observations on 30 September 1996, were the reasons to compile a new collection of UV spectra of normal galaxies, obtained by the IUE Observatory. This collection is presented in this publication. We believe that its compilation will further enhance the lasting value of the IUE observations.
