In order to build more realistic single stellar population (SSP) modelswith variable �-enhancement,we have recently determined [Mg/Fe] in a uniform scale with a precision of about 0.1 dex for 752 stars in the MILES empirical library. The [�/Fe] abundance ratio is commonly used as a good temporal scale indicator of star formation, taking Mg as a template for � elements. Calcium is another element whose abundance is currently being investigated for the MILES stars. The MILES library is also being expanded by around 20% by including stars with known Teff, log g, [Fe/H] and [Mg/Fe]. The transformation of their photospheric parameters to the MILES system has been carried out, but the calibration of their [Mg/Fe] is still in progress. In parallel, C, N and O abundances are also being compiled from literature for the library stars because they play an important role in the photospheric opacity, particularly influencing the blue spectral\ud region. The Galactic kinematic classification of MILES stars with compiled [Mg/Fe] has been just computed such that this information can be considered in the SSPmodelling. Comparisons of theoretical stellar predictions of the Lick line-strength indices against theMILES data have revealed the good behaviour of Fe-sensitive indices predictions, while highlighting areas for improvement in some models for the higher order H-Balmer features.
