DESIGN OF A DATABASE DRIVEN SYSTEM TO COMPILE AND DEFINE LOCAL BIOINFORMATICS RESOURCES AT THE UNIVERSITY OF NORTH CAROLINA AT CHAPEL HILL
This master's project answered the need for a comprehensive database of bioinformatics resources, services, and faculty members at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. This paper traces the development of the database from its inception at the Health Sciences Library as a Field Experience project through design and documentation as the database took shape. User groups are listed along with their tasks, and the special considerations these groups required during design of the Web interface for the database. Finally, preliminary results from a survey of potential users of this database are included with future plans for the database after graduation.
