Abstract: A large shallow survey for quasars was undertaken to achieve a better understanding of the quasar luminosity function and of large clustering at z less than 2.2. The Key-Programme was started in 1989 and the expected duration is five years. The planned area of the survey is approximately 1500 sq deg with limiting magnitudes of 16 to 19 B and z less than 2.2. Plates have been obtained for 25 fields of 25 sq deg each and 14 fields have been photometrically calibrated.
