OK, that's great. Where do I find documentation to tell me how to set
up the site?

I mean that I have a great deal of papers. I can't go through web
forms to add all of these documents. I would like to be able to submit
them through an automated process, I can't go through web forms by
hand to add them all.

I'm trying to convince my lab that this is a useful product. If I ask
them to submit their papers one at a time I'll lose the argument and
we won't use Zope.
