A catalogue of 7760 carbon stars in the Large Magellenic Cloud is presented. The stars were identified during a systematic survey of objective-prism plates taken with the UK 1.2 m Schmidt Telescope. The catalogue is compared with other lists of carbon stars and the distribution of the carbon stars is discussed.
