[R] Primer for working with survey data in R

I am taking a behavioral stats graduate class and the instructor is using
SPSS. I'm trying to follow along in R.

Recently in class we started working with scales and survey data, computing
Cronbach's Alpha, reversing values for reverse coded items, etc.

Also, SPSS has some built in functionality for entering the meta-data for
your survey, e.g. the possible values for items, the text of the question,

I haven't been able to find any survey guidance for R other than how to run
the actual calculations (Cronbach's, reversing values).

Are there tutorials, books, or other primers, that would guide a newbie
step by step through using R for working with survey data? It would be
helpful to see how others are doing these things. (Not just how to run the
mathematical operations but how to work with and manage the data.) Possibly
this would be in conjunction with some packages such as Likert or Scales.
