These documents provide access to an extensive collection of information describing the many components of ANGEL and how to use them. In most cases we have adapted the vendor's documentation to reflect how we use ANGEL at MSU. You may find some instances where the documents and our installed version of ANGEL don't match. Note that the vendor-created videos will not reflect MSU changes. If you have questions, please contact the Help Desk.
