Databases tree

An introduction to the theory and practice of constructing and using databases. Through a mixture of lectures and practical sessions, students will be taught both how to use and adapt existing databases, and how to design and build their own. No previous specialist knowledge apart from an understanding of historical analysis is needed. The software used is MS Access, but the techniques demonstrated can easily be adapted to any package or platform.
