(Received 11 September 2002 / Accepted 14 February 2003 )

We present STELIB, a new spectroscopic stellar library, available at STELIB consists of an homogeneous library of 249 stellar spectra in the visible range (3200 to 9500 Å), with an intermediate spectral resolution ( $\la$3 Å) and sampling (1 Å). This library includes stars of various spectral types and luminosity classes, spanning a relatively wide range in metallicity. The spectral resolution, wavelength and spectral type coverage of this library represents a substantial improvement over previous libraries used in population synthesis models. The overall absolute photometric uncertainty is 3%.

Key words: atlases -- stars: fundamental parameters -- galaxies: stellar content.
