Using a combination of deep near-infrared (NIR) data obtained with the Infrared Spectrograph and Array Camera at the VLT and the WFPC2 Hubble Space Telescope data, we construct a K-band-selected sample which is 50% and 90% complete for Ks,AB≤23.5 and Ks,AB≤22.0, respectively, where the magnitudes are measured over a 2.0" diameter aperture. For z≤3, our selection by the K-band flux chooses galaxies based on wavelengths redder than the rest-frame V band, and so selects them in a way that is less dependent on their current star formation rates than selection in the rest-frame UV.
