This atlas contains sample spectra from the far-ultraviolet observations of32 symbiotic stars obtained with the lnternational Ultraviolet Explorer (IUE) satellite. In all, 394 low-resolution spectra from the short-wavelength pnmary (SWP) camera covering the range 1200-2000 A have been extracted from the IUE archive, calibrated, and measured. Absolute line fluxes and wavelengths for the prominent emission lines have been tabulated. Tables of both the general properties of these symbiotics and of features specific to the spectrum of each are included. The spectra shown are representative of the different classes of symbiotic stars that are currently in the IUE archive. These include known eclipsing systems and those that have been observed in outburst (as well as quiescence).
