New mid- to far-infrared spectroscopy from the Spitzer Space Telescope is added to a rich suite of previous imaging and spectroscopy, including ROSAT, Galaxy Evolution Explorer, Sloan Digital Sky Survey, Two Micron All Sky Survey, and Spitzer/SWIRE. Sample selection ensures an even coverage of the full range of normal galaxy properties, spanning two orders of magnitude in stellar mass, color, and dust attenuation. In this paper we present the SSGSS data set, describe the science drivers, and detail the sample selection, observations, data reduction, and quality assessment. Description: The full SSGSS sample was observed with the IRS on board the Spitzer Space Telescope as a Cycle-3 Legacy Survey. All spectroscopic observations were performed in spectral mapping mode. Observations were divided between 29 Astronomical Observation Requests (AORs), each consisting of four to eight galaxies observed in cluster mode. File Summary:
