Where do I set up the plugins and themes in my network?

I am assembling my criteria and questions to bring to you for some answers and clarification, but for now, I think I should go ahead and install the plugins I expect to be using in my multisite network. Let me know if I should install particular things first, and where. My main question as I begin is where do I install the plugins and themes?
I assume that I should install them to the network admin for use throughout the network.
I believe I understand it this way. All tools used in the network come from the central install, that is network activated.
Please advise or confirm.

    Hi there and welcome to the WPMU DEV Community for WordPress Support!

    Yep, you've got it right for now! Complexities come in, though, when you don't network activate, but in a good way. Point for now being, install all plugins and themes in the Network Admin dashboard.

    Cheers,
