Abstract: Be stars vary from hours to decades. A Survey to analyze the variation and its origin in these stars is therefore necessary. By compiling a new catalogue BeSOS (Be Stars Observation Survey) using one instrument, we will be offering a consistent database for all the Be stars accessible by PUCHEROS. BeSOS will host high resolution spectra (R = 20000) in the visible for more than 200 Be star. The aim of this database is to increase the number of observations for southern Be stars, to seek and constrain variability but also for a statistical study on a large sample of these objects. The database will be available in the beginning of 2015 and will contain the RAW and reduced data on each target. Moreover the database will contain information such as stellar parameters, if the target was observed with interferometry, and the constraints of interferometric observations. The database currently contains 65 Be star with more than 400 spectra. In this proceeding we present the importance of such a database as well as examples of spectra.
