Well if I want to connect three buildings together I'm not sure what I would need.  They would be connected like a full mesh topology.  I would have six T1 connections crimped together to go one spot to another so each building would have six lines in and six lines out to be connected to.  But what device would this be?

Um... a router.
However, if i was running lines outside a building, especailly very far, i would use fiber, and if you need it meshed for redundancy i would look into FDDI.

Well I'm trying to find more information on the internet about inverse mux but.  Does that just plug into a certain server?  And is that just a plain network card or anything in particular.

This consolidates/bonds your T1's into a single high-speed serial connection that would then connect to a Router at each location. Cisco's solution is a HSSI interface. The router is the go-between to connect the T1's to the local LAN through an Ethernet interface. The server would connect Ethernet to the same LAN through a switch/hub.
