Abstract
Drift-scan mode (3600-6800 Å) spectra with 500<R<1000 resolution are presented for 333 galaxies members of nearby clusters, covering the whole Hubble sequence. The majority (225) were obtained for galaxies in the Virgo cluster where a completeness of 36%, if all Hubble types are considered, and of 51%, restricting to late-types, was reached at $m_p\leq$ 16. Our data can be therefore considered representative of the integrated spectral properties of giant and dwarf galaxies in this cluster. Intensities and equivalent widths ( EWs) are derived for the principal lines, both in emission and in absorption. Deblending of the underlying absorption from emission was achieved in most cases.
