Краткий обзор статьи: In the present work the part of the quasar UV-optical bump within the wavelength range 1210-1450AA was studied with the help of composite spectra compiled from the samples of SDSS DR7 spectra with the similar spectral index alpha_{lambda} within 1270-1480 AA. This division allowed to see weak emission lines, which were not detected in previous studies of the quasar composite spectra, but were known from individual optical or composite UV spectra from the Hubble Space Telescope. Although the physical explanation of the difference in spectral indices between quasars and their dependence on quasar parameters is still not clear, it is obvious that this difference has to be taken into account when generating composite spectra, e.g. for redshift measurements. It was also shown that the equivalent width of the emission lines does not depend on the spectral index.
