The goal of this class is to introduce you to the basics of reading DLS catalogs from the database. To get started, you should install the tools described in the first section of this tutorial, and attempt to follow along so that you get a feel for the use fo database tools.
I will use the DLS Database as the example in this tutorial, but will avoid talking about the specific contents of the database very much. We will need to do some team sessions later on for those topics.
