Abstract: We present medium-resolution (R~2400) H and K near-infrared integrated spectra of young metal-poor star clusters in the LMC and the SMC, obtained by scanning across the clusters. The data will be used for both testing evolutionary population models and building a template library for empirical fitting of the spectra of low-metallicity star-forming galaxies. The sample clusters have well known ages and metal abundances from the turn-off point of their main sequence and from high-resolution optical spectra of cluster member stars, respectively.
