An Antique Engineering Filing System for Personal Use and as a DBMS Case Study
This is document serves four purposes. First: it is a documentation of a 0th generation engineering filing system. Second: it is a call for input from anyone familiar with comparable file systems. Third: it is an introduction to a very useful personal filing system. By documenting an historical file system and interpreting it in terms of modern technology, we derive a filing system that has proved robust and very useful for personal filing systems and for small business use. Fourth: this document describes a very engaging case study use of this simple system employed in a database course as a real database that the students can use.
