This compilation was produced in support of the TAUVEX mission. UV research at Tel Aviv University is supported by grants from the Ministry of Science, Culture and Sport through the Israel Space Agency, from the Austrian Friends of Tel Aviv University, and from a Center of Excellence Award from the Israel Science Foundation. NB acknowledges support from an US-Israel Binational Award to study UV sources measured by the FAUST experiment. In this publication we made use of the LEDA database, http://www-obs.univ-lyon1.fr.
We are grateful to Willem Wamsteker for encouraging us to go ahead with the production of this Guide. Enrique Solano helped us by recalculating the true pointing of IUE of some 20 discrepant IUE spectra. This solved the mystery of reasonable spectra apparently obtained on blank sky.
