Build Your Own Database

Peter Jacso (Author) F.W. Lancaster (Author)
Synopsis Quality, as applied to databases, is not something abstract or theoretical. It is a very practical issue. In the simplest terms, a database is of high quality if it's useful to the community it's designed to serve.

Commercial databases serve some of your users' needs, but not all needs are met. For instance, you may wish to create databases of community resources or unique documents in your collection. With ever-improving computer technology, it's easier than ever before to create a database. However, the challenges of creating a good database remain.

In build your own database, authors Peter Jacso and F.W. Lancaster show you how to create quality in databases with advice in such areas as

Designing content with consideration of domain of coverage, accessibility, currency, critical mass, and other criteria.
Constructing database with retrievability of useful information in mind.
Comparing the types of database software with specific examples of those that are commonly used in libraries and selecting the best tool for your needs.
Developing strategies for indexing your data learning how software features affect the structure of your data, the handling of multiple record types, template design for easy updates, and other database capabilities.
