Integrated spectroscopy of 16 Large Magellanic Cloud stellar clusters

We present flux-calibrated integrated spectra in the optical range for a sample of 16 stellar clusters belonging to the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC). We derive foreground E(B-V) reddening values and ages for the sample by comparing their integrated spectra with template LMC cluster spectra and with simple stellar population models, taking into account different metallicities values. In an effort to create a spectral library at the LMC metallicity level with several clusters per age range, this cluster sample stands out as a useful complement to previous ones.
