These spectra are used to measure radial velocities and to derive atmospheric parameters, which we compare with those reported by the SEGUE Stellar Parameter Pipeline (SSPP). The SSPP obtains estimates of these quantities based on SDSS ugriz photometry and low-resolution (R∼2000) spectroscopy. Description: The majority of the data presented in this paper were obtained with the Hobby-Eberly Telescope (HET), located in West Texas, making use of its High Resolution Spectrograph (HRS). Additional spectra were obtained with the Keck Observatory, using both the High Resolution Echelle Spectrometer (HIRES) and the Echelle Spectrograph and Imager (ESI), and with the Subaru telescope and the High Dispersion Spectrograph (HDS), both located on Mauna Kea, Hawaii.
