Basic SQL

 Registration is closed for this event
Structured Query Language, or SQL (sometimes pronounced “sequel”), is a powerful language used to query and manipulate data held in relational databases. Many librarians go through mediated queries to find needed information e.g. conducting a search via a library catalogue. With SQL, you can directly construct your database queries without the constraints (e.g. field name or search limitations) imposed by a mediated search interface. This course is an introduction to the basics of SQL including terminology, design, working with databases, and working with the PHP scripting language.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understanding the terminology and relational (linked) databases (tables)
  • Designing a small database and writing SQL statements
  • Demonstrating the ability to add/delete data from the database
  • Understanding how PHP works with MySQ
