Abstract: The Chandra Data Archive is more than Chandra data. It also includes proposal abstracts, observation parameters, and a bibliography. In addition, there are logs and databases which record user interactions with archive. It's the data which tie these seemingly disparate snapshots of the archive together. By examining the interdependence between the various facets of the archive we can better visualize how our data is being utilized within the astronomical community and perhaps discover new or improved ways to serve the science needs of the community.
