The spectra were collected with the Far Ultraviolet Spectroscopic Explorer and cover a wavelength range from 1003.1 to 1182.7Å at a resolution of 0.127Å. The libraries extend from the earliest O to late-O and early-B stars for the Magellanic Cloud and Galactic libraries, respectively. Description: Our far-UV libraries contain spectra of OB and Wolf-Rayet (WR) stars collected with FUSE mainly during its first cycle (1999 December to 2000 December). The FUSE instrument provides redundant wavelength coverage by means of eight independent spectra, each covering a ∼100Å region between 905 and 1187Å at a resolving power of ∼20,000. A detailed description of FUSE can be found in Moos et al. (2000ApJ...538L...1M) and Sahnow et al. (2000ApJ...538L...7S). File Summary:
