Spectra, position, magnitudes and colors are presented for 485 faint ( $B_{\rm J}<20.5$) emission line objects selected with the ultraviolet-excess (UVX) criterion on a area of 24.6 deg2 in the South Galactic Pole. The objects were selected from the analysis of pixel-to-pixel stacking of COSMOS scans of UKST U J and R plates. The candidates were observed with the Meudon-ESO Fiber Optics System (MEFOS) at the ESO 3.6 m telescope. 429 type 1 AGNs have been identified (373 in the redshift range $0.3<z\leq2.2$). This sample has allowed the measure of a difference on the QSO clustering evolution in comparison with that found for galaxies [(La Franca et al. 1998)]. The region is part of the ESO Imaging Survey (EIS) and of the 2dF QSO redshift survey.
