Abstract : This report concerns one of the major observational studies in the ISO Central Programme, the ISO Normal Galaxy Survey. This is a survey of an unbiased sample of spiral and lenticular galaxies selected from the Revised Shapley-Ames Catalog. It is therefore optically-selected, with a brightness limit of blue magnitude = 12, and otherwise randomly chosen. The original sample included 150 galaxies, but this was reduced to 74 when the allocated observing time was expended because the ISO overheads encountered in flight were much larger than predicted.
