We are presenting new empirical fitting functions for the Lick/IDS line-strength indices as measured in MILES (Medium-resolution INT Library of Empirical Spectra). Following previous work in the field, these functions describe the empirical behaviour of the line-strength indices with the atmospheric stellar parameters (T_(eff), logɡ, [Fe/H]). In order to derive the fitting functions we have devised a new procedure which, being fully automatic, provides a better description of the line-strength index variations in the stellar parameter space.
