The Hubble New Generation Spectral Library (HNGSL) provides a unique opportunity to explore evolutionary population synthesis models in the UV. The library contains spectra for a few hundred stars with fundamental parameters known from analysis of the visual spectrum. The spectra cover fully the wavelength range from 1700 & Aring to 10,200 & Aring with spectral resolution close to 5 Å, providing excellent coverage of the near-UV and the range from 9000 Å to 10,200 Å.
