Abstract: A study of the available archival IUE images of Beta Lyrae has led to the following results: (1) for lambda in the range of 1250 - 1500 A, the eclipse depth at second conjunction is slightly larger than the eclipse depth at primary conjunction; they are equal at about 1670 A; (2) the profiles of the resonance lines of SiIV (and the same seems to be true for NV and CIV) can be described as composite, formed by the superposition of a stationary P Cygni profile that suggests a velocity of approach of -170 km/s and a broad, less strong, emission that seems to yield a velocity distribution in antiphase with the velocity curve of the B8 II component of the system; and (3) the emission lines of the intercombination doublet of semiforbidden N II at about 2140 A suggest a velocity of about -130 km/s. The interpretation of the latter composite profile appears similar to the one suggested by Sahade (1966) to describe H-alpha and He I 5876 and He I 6678, and by Batten and Sahade (1973) to describe H-alpha.
