The compilation of this bibliography was undertaken during preparations for the celebration of the 150th anniversary of the University of Helsinki Observatory. The purpose was to collect together astronomical publications by astronomers of the Observatory and of the Astrophysics Laboratory (formerly Radio Astronomy Station). We have chosen to include rather than omit such material which cannot be strictly regarded as observatory publications. Thus some astronomical publications by persons working at certain other institutes of the University of Helsinki have been included, as well as publications which have been listed as belonging to the Observatory and/or the Astrophysics Laboratory publication series. In, general, with regard to the individual authors, we have tried to limit ourselves to the period during which they were active at the observatory, e.g. A. Krueger during 1862-76, with occasional publications based on his observations at Helsinki until 1890 included. Because of practical difficulties these restrictions tend to be rather loose. Very few popular publications have been included from the period 1940-70 because of unavailability of data. After that, only popular articles that have appeared in book form can be found in the bibliography.

The data has been based mainly on publication lists and surveys of such magazines as Astronomische Nachrichten. Markku Poutanen designed the computer program which was used to process the material. Eva Isaksson was responsible for the final selection and presentation of the data. Eija Laurikainen. Merja Karsma and Jukka Piironen typed parts of the data. We thank Seppo Linnaluoto for his expert advice concerning the Observatory history.
