An abundance analysis has been carried out for some members of the class of rapidly rotating metal-poor Population I A-type stars, called the λ Bootis stars .

In this poster LTE abundances for several elements are presented. Furthermore, some of the problems encountered in an investigation of λ Boo stars are illustrated.
