We present a spectrophotometric catalogue of 90 emission-line galaxies (ELGs) discovered during an objective - prism survey that aimed to search for dwarf galaxies within the voids (Popescu et al. 1996, 1998). The paper presents line ratios, equivalent widths and absolute fluxes for the emission-lines seen in the spectra of the galaxies. A list of newly discovered Wolf-Rayet galaxies is presented. Many objects included in the catalogue have low metallicity and the extreme cases are proposed as candidates for very low metallicity galaxies.
