Using the NRLD

Navigating the Database

The primary component of the NRLD website is the NRLD Technical Notes (similar to a monograph); these are used to accompany and describe the data in the archive. To monitor recent activity such as new Technical Notes or recent changes to previously published Technical Notes, see the Activity link. Finally, each Technical Note allows for comments to be made. These can be in the form of suggestions, questions, or new usages. Comments will need to be approved.
