Interplanetary Networks (IPNs) have been in use since the late 1970’s. The current IPN comprises 9 spacecraft and detects about 325 GRBs/year, roughly 100 of which are not localized by Swift or Fermi. It is an all-sky, full-time monitor for short-duration gamma-ray transients. We describe the IPN database, which is publicly available on the IPN website. It comprises, among other things, a GRB bibliography, a comprehensive list of bursts from 1990 to the present, and localization data. We also describe some of the uses of the IPN data.
