Abstract

Searches of large-scale surveys have resulted in the discovery of over 1000 brown dwarfs in the Solar neighborhood. In this chapter we review the progress in finding brown dwarfs in large datasets, highlighting the key science goals and summarizing the surveys that have contributed most significantly to the current sample.
