Our sample is comprised of stars in the field and some Galactic globular clusters, including stars on the main sequence, the red giant branch (RGB), and the horizontal branch (HB). The metal-poor stars are, mainly, slow rotators, and their vsini distribution along the HR diagram is quite homogeneous. Nevertheless, a few moderate to high values of vsini are found in stars located on the main sequence and the HB. We show that the overall distribution of vsini values is basically independent of metallicity for the stars in our sample. We present an extensive tabulation of all quantities discussed in this paper, including rotation velocities, temperatures, gravities, and metallicities [Fe/H], as well as broadband magnitudes and colors.

Note (1): For the stars in M 79, the V values are based on measurements using the y passband of the Stromgren system, since V and y magnitudes are well known to be basically identical (Clem et al. 2004, Cat. J/AJ/127/1227). Note (2): Flag as follows: a = (V-I) Johnson system. b = u, (u-y) Stromgren system. c = F555W, (F439W-F555W) Stromgren system. d = (U-V) Johnson system. e = U, (U-B) Johnson system. Note (3): We calculated the absolute magnitude MV and the unreddened color (B-V)0 provided using the distance modulus and reddening values compiled in Harris (1996, Cat. VII/195, superseded by VII/202) for each globular cluster (see Table 2).
