In this paper, we present a catalog of type 2 quasars from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey, selected based on their optical emission lines. The catalog contains 887 objects with redshifts z<0.83; this is 6 times larger than the previous version and is by far the largest sample of type 2 quasars in the literature. File Summary:

Note (1): Binary number: the first four digits of the target code show whether the object was targeted by the Galaxy, Low-z QSO, High-z QSO, or Serendipity FIRST algorithm (in that order). The last digit indicates whether the object belongs to the Special Southern survey. Note (2): Of the nearest match within 2" from the FIRST survey (Becker et al., 1995, See Cat. VIII/71); 0 = no match was found. -1 = object is not in the FIRST survey area. Note (3): PSF asinh magnitudes are taken from the SDSS TARGET database and corrected for Galactic extinction (Schlegel et al., 1998ApJ...500..525S).
