We have fully characterized the NGSL stellar spectral library, which allows us to open the UV stellar spectral range for stellar population studies. We have performed the necessary steps to prepare this library for its implementation in models synthesizing SEDs of stellar cluster and galaxy spectra. We have determined and homogenized the atmospheric parameters of the stars of this library with the aid of a full spectrum-fitting algorithm, using the MILES spectral library as a template. We also have characterized the resolution of this library and corrected systematic effects in the optical spectral range to achieve a precision of 10% of the dispersion.
