We report atmospheric parameter estimates (Teff, log g, [Fe/H]) and other information (radial velocities, proper motions, distance estimates) for roughly 40,000 stars (out of a total of some 75,000) from the third public release of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS), DR-3. As part of this exercise, we have compiled a set of spectral templates that might prove useful as examples of the kinds of stars that will be found in the SEGUE (Sloan Extension for Galactic Understanding and Evolution) project, which is part of the proposed SDSS-II extension.
