The Spanish Virtual Observatory1 maintains a service that provides ~ 45 libraries of theoretical and observational spectra that can be accessed through a web interface or using Virtual Observatory protocols (mainly from VO tools like TOPCAT or VOSpec). For each collection of spectra we also provide the associated synthetic photometry using the set of > 3000 filters available in the SVO Filter Profile Service. All this information is also used by VOSA (the VO Sed Analyzer) to analyse observed spectral energy distributions for comparisons with collections of theoretical or observational spectra.
