Title: Ultraviolet observations of LMC nova 1988

This current bright novae was first detected in outburst on March 21, 1988. Its discovery has given us the opportunity of studying the first extragalactic nova in the ultraviolet and we have, therefore, obtained a number of LWP and SWP spectra when it was at maximum. We have also obtained a high dispersion LWP spectrum in order to study the ISM in the Large Magellanic Cloud on a slightly different line-of-sight from that analyzed using SN 1987A. 10 refs., 2 figs.
