dc.description.abstract The Two Micron All-Sky Survey will result in a database of millions of newly-discovered near-infrared bright sources of all types, from stars to nebulae to distant galaxies. The full potential of thesurvey will be greatly expanded by providing optical (blue and/or visual) identifications to thesesources from existing databases of optical objects from digitized Schmidt plate archives. I willdescribe the procedures developed at IPAC to identify infrared sources in the IRAS Faint SourceSurvey using such optical archives, and how these will be applied to the 2MASS survey. I willsummarize some of the expected results and in particular will discuss a search for distant near-infrared luminous Active Galactic Nuclei in the 2MASS database. en_US
