We report the results of a high-resolution spectroscopic survey of all the stars more luminous than M V = 6.5 mag within 14.5 pc from the Sun. The Hipparcos catalog's completeness limits guarantee that our survey is comprehensive and free from some of the selection effects in other samples of nearby stars. The resulting spectroscopic database, which we have made publicly available, includes spectra for 118 stars obtained with a resolving power of $R \simeq 50\,000$, continuous spectral coverage…
