A catalogue of 361 galactic contact binaries is presented. Listed
contact binaries are divided into five groups according to the type and
quality of the available observations and parameters. For all systems the
ephemeris for the primary minimum, minimum and maximum visual brightness and
equatorial coordinates are given. If available, photometric elements,
(m1+m2) sin3 i,
spectral type, parallax and magnitude of the O'Connell
effect are also given. Photometric data for several systems are augmented by
new observations. The quality of the available data is assessed and
systems requiring modern light-curve solutions are selected.
Selected statistical properties of the collected data are discussed.
