FONTAlNE, F. WESEMAEL, AND R. LAMONTAGNE Departement de Physique. Universite de Montreal, Montreal, Quebec, H3C 317 Canada Received 3 June 1992; revised 19 August 1992 ABSTRACT We describe and present the first results of a UV-bright galaxy survey using the Montreal-Cambridge-Tololo (MCT) plate collection. Visual inspection of 57 CTIO Curtis Schmidt plates, covering more than 1300 deg^2^, has resulted in the identification of 95 UV-bright galaxies brighter than B= 15.5. Even though 80% of these objects are IRAS sources, barely 20% have their nature already established. The initial result of our survey shows that the bulk of our UV-bright candidates are narrow emission-line galaxies commonly known as starburst or H II galaxies. The fraction of AGNs found is somewhat less than 10%, but comparable to what has been found by the Markarian survey. We expect to find ~500 UV-bright galaxies in the 7000 deg^2^ of the MCT Survey with b <- 40^deg^. As we go further south, a large number of bright new objects will be discovered.
