We present here a compilation of all galaxies classified as ``normal'', i.e. not containing an AGN, which were observed by the IUE satellite. This is an updated and enlarged version of the previous IUE ULDA Guide to Normal Galaxies, produced by Longo & Capaccioli, and supersedes it. We took advantage of the final processing of IUE observations within the INES archive to extract all the observations of galaxies classified as normal and we present their UV spectra after matching the fluxes between the SW and LW segments that were observed toward the same location in the galaxy.

We believe that although most IUE observations of normal galaxies were only of their central regions, as defined by the optical light distributions, this compilation will be of some use in understanding the UV light produced by the different stellar populations in objects lacking a central, compact, massive object.
