How the Guides Are Organized

The Guides are reference documents that explain how to use LibraData, the local instance of Dataverse installed at UVA. The User Guide is divided into primary activities: finding & using data, adding Datasets, administering dataverses or Datasets, and Dataset exploration/visualizations. Details on all of the above tasks can be found in the Users Guide.
