Stars included in the catalogue of [FORMULA] Bootis stars by Paunzen et al. (1997) with high resolution spectra (FWHM: 0.10-0.25 Å) in the INES Archive of the International Ultraviolet Explorer satellite (IUE) are analyzed here in order to establish membership criteria for the [FORMULA] Bootis group. Line-ratios of carbon to heavier elements (Si, Al, Ca) were adopted as criteria in the SWP range (1150-1980 Å). For the LWP range (1850-3350 Å), the intensity of metallic lines (Fe and Mg) was used. These criteria, together with those derived for low resolution spectra, make the IUE Final Archive a powerful tool to find new [FORMULA] Bootis candidates.

Key words: stars: chemically peculiar – stars: early-type – ultraviolet: stars
