We carried out a search cross-matching SDSS, 2MASS, and UKIDSS with VO tools. We considered different photometric and proper motion criteria for our selection. We identified 100 late-type subdwarf candidates. We obtained our own low-resolution optical spectra for 71 of our candidates and retrieved Sloan spectra for 30 of them (9 in common to the 71). We classified 92 candidates based on optical spectra. Our new discoveries include 49 subdwarfs, 25 extreme subdwarfs, six ultrasubdwarfs, one subdwarf/extreme subdwarf, and two dwarfs/subdwarfs. In addition, we discovered three early-L subdwarfs. We double the numbers of cool subdwarfs and derived a surface density of late-type subdwarfs. Description: Optical spectra of 92 late-type dwarfs from GTC/OSIRIS, VLT/FORS2, NOT/ALFOSC, and SDSS. Each file contains wavelength (in Angstroms) and the flux (in ergs/cm2/sec/Angstrom) in the first and second column, respectively. Fluxes are normalised at 1.0 at 7500 Angstroms. Names of files are composed of ID number followed by HHMMsDDMM of the coordinates of the object (where 's' is the sign) Tables 1, 2, and 4 of the paper are available through CDS. The data presented in this paper and CDS are also gathered in a VO-compliant archive at and include even more options for visualisation. File Summary:
