Database Design and Management, omaygash

August 18, 2009 1 comment

I can really remember na at the end of the day, napa-plurk na lang ako. Hahaha. I plurked na wala na akong ma-gets sa 160. Sorry.

[Halos] magkatabi kami ni Mariel nung araw na iyon eh. Nagtatanungan kami ng “ano?” Siguro hell week lang talaga namin yun. Majors crunching in and all.

What I can suggest is for us to have hand-outs before class. Hand-outs for exercises and examples ni sir. Para hindi lang kami naka-tingin sa board and wondering what’s happening but rather we can use our hands to formulate our own examples and such.

As the topic came across search vs query, it got my attention. Well because it sounded like LIS71. So nung time na yun nakasabay naman ako. Yung ibang topics na, dugo talaga. The examples were :€ [–> imbento kong nosebleed emoticon]. I had to search the google [for example: SQL, DBMS, etc.] to get in the zone. Buti na lang pwede (pang) mag-laptop at mag-internet sa class. I got to search sa google books yung SQL for Dummies. Haha. Google books is one of my favorite sites by the way.

Well we’ll all get a hang on this one. I’m pretty sure basics naman yung inaaral namin dito eh. Parang sayaw lang yan, akala mo mahirap pero basic lang pala yung tinuturo sa’yo. Someday pagtatawanan mo rin sarili mo at sasabihin na “madali lang pala yun eh.”

at first, I was a yahoo fanatic as a search engine and email..

but upon learning what google is,, my outlook in life changed..

far more better pala ang google sa yahoo nalaman ko dun sa video..

ung mga information na nilalabas niya ay mas relevant compare to that of yahoo..

ska its growing na,, i thought search engine lang xa, though may gmail na noon pa,,


nakatutuwang isipin na iyong google ay umuunlad na din pala kalo ko kasi yahoo lang eh,,

karamihan nga ng nakikita ko eh powerd by google,,

bstah i think sa susunod google can stand on its own..

Information Storage and Retrieval Systems and Database Design and Management

August 18, 2009 2 comments

According to Sir, IRS is a system that stores and retrieves information. I know we had a seatwork where we made a blog post about IRS and it was fun looking back on that day because our group had no idea what we were typing. We didn’t know what to put in functions, goals, types of retrieval, etc. so we simply just scoured the internet with whatever we can find but most of the time to no avail. It was hard searching for articles related to IRS that include its goals, functions, and vice versa. It’s like an Easter egg hunt except that it’s frustrating because you can’t find exactly what you’re looking for. Anyway, good thing Sir discussed it in class so things were at least clarified. Turns out the types of retrieval we gave were wrong! They were kinds of IRS and not types. It was the other way around. Too bad but we couldn’t exactly tell the difference between the types and the kinds of retrieval that Sir was looking for. I still think Kinds and Types are the same thing. But at least, now I know.

As for Database Design and Management, usually when I hear the word “database”, MySQL comes to mind. I guess my exposure to web design has something to do with it since I use a script (it’s called Enthusiast) that involves MySQL usage. This script helps me in maintaining my fanlistings (small fan sites) where I approve members for each subject almost on a daily basis and their records are entered at once in the database. But then again, we all do encounter databases on a daily basis. When we search something online, we make use of databases. I’ve learned that databases are interconnected with IRS. I’ve also learned that multiple users can access a database at the same time making that information available to everyone at once. Also, what really got stuck in my head for this part was constructing those E-R diagrams because I find them fun. They’re like the flow charts we use to make in programming back in high school but somewhat less hassle. I don’t know but constructing flow charts back in high school was okay until the programs became more difficult to understand. Maybe the same thing will happen with these E-R diagrams but hopefully, not.

I’ve included in here some pictures. The first one is my Enthusiast panel. It’s the script I use for fanlistings and then the second picture shows my phpMyAdmin page. It’s the database called michi_enth. Sorry if I covered the Server and some stuff.

reports rolled-up in one..

August 18, 2009 1 comment

throughout high school, these topics have been very familiar to me and some of the terms involved.
however, i think it was nice to actually hear and see it again now given that so many developments in computers have emerged these past few years. as a whole, i learned to appreciate more the people and companies behind the development of computers and internet. that it’s not just for browsing and blogs and writing your paper.
as one of the reporteres on the history of the internet, i was surprised that i was actually entertained by it all. reading the developments of the internet from ARPANET to www and how diverse it is now.
overall, i’d say that the history of computing and internet are perfect examples of technology being applied to existing purposes and then innovated to serve new purposes.

WEB 2.0
at first, i didn’t know that there was a “collective term” for social networks, communication tools, etc. namely web 2.0. this report/topic helped me to widen my knowledge on wrokings of the sites/networks that i devote most of my time in. in a sense, it also serves as an update on the history of internet and on how people these days make use of existing technologies to serve new purposes. and although web 2.0 has features that seem to be unthinkable before, the prospect of web 3.0 or atleast more improvements and/or new innovations on the way we are now is nothing but thrilling.

oh no, sorry sabaw..wala na akong maisip..

this is the first time i’ve heard of the term “library 2.0” and if i may say so, the group was well-informed and was able to translate to the class what library 2.0 really is about. throughout the report, i learned the differences of library 2.0 with traditional libraries, one of them is being more “user-centered” and that it gives more liberty to the librarians in cataloging their materials.
although there are concerns in privacy and all, i think library 2.0 is a very good innovation and use for the current web 2.0 technology that we have. i also think that it’s only a matter of time for “traditionalists” to eventually accept or agree on the concept of library 2.0. and as a library user myself, i think using library 2.0 also helps in encouraging other young users to make use of the library given that library 2.0 helps in easy search, and in a way fits the lifestyle of users today.

i took up pop law elective in high school, so the idea of intellectual property rights is kind of familiar to me already. given this background, i think the group was able to clarify the terms that seem to be vague and/or complicated to people. regarding the differnet kinds of info products sush as e-books, it is a big adavantage to people, especially to us in the philippines to save on buying foreign released textbooks. i remember in high school, one physics textbook costs p5000. through these e-books, we can avail those books for free or atleast at a much lower price. however, when it comes to leisure books (novels, etc.) i still prefer the physical book or the hard-copy..:D nothing beats the scent and feel of a newly purchased book when you flip the page..:D

“All books are alike in that they are truer than if they had happened, and after you are finished reading one you will feel that all that happened to you and afterwards it all belonged to you: the good, the bad, the ecstasy, the remorse and sorrow, the people and the places and how the weather was. If you can get so that you can give that to the people, then you are a writer.” – Ernest Hemingway

Information Storage and Retrieval Systems

IRS is also one significant topic to study, not only that it increases the knowledge of the people, but most especialy it enables us to preserve, maintain, and even enhance the data into a specific medium we prefer. It is also one way of retrieving information effectively. We can use different resources on acquiring and storing information. This type of application can be best used by Reference Librarians. Since their major function is to provide and identify information with regards to the need of the users. It would make their tasks more controlled and probably it will minimize the time allotment in a particular request.


Database Design and Management

Basically, database is an organization of data into a system. The information are of any type which corresponds to the needs of an individual. Databases plays an important role especially in business firms, academic institutions and governmental purposes. It does not only restrain us from doing a lot of tasks but also provides an instant file which be of need of a person or organization. The DBMS on the other hand, or the Database Management System is a software that is responsibl e for the operation of the database.  As a librarian or an information specialist, it is indeed very essential to be familiar with databases and especially making one. We should be always open to change as to developing a system which will contribute to the collection and acquisition process of libraries. Also, it is another way wherein we can enhance the technical skills and make better in the field of Information system.
