In this paper we review the observed infrared properties of the general classes of active extragalactic nuclei with the purpose of relating the observations to the mechanisms responsible for the emission processes. We will first give a summary of those observations which define the energy distributions and emission line ratios of broad groups of objects. We will intersperse measurements of specific features throughout the discussion that illustrate definite emission mechanisms.
