Abstract

This paper contains a list of new AGN candidates identified from the examination of 3500 optical spectra contained in the database of the Southern Sky Redshift Survey Extension (SSRS2). The classification of galaxies was done using standard diagnostics and a total of (5) Seyfert 1, (12) Seyfert 2 and (10) LINERs were found. We also present a list of 60 galaxies for which we could not secure a definite classification, but which might present some level of nuclear activity.
