TEXT/PLAIN (44 lines)

Thus far this is what I have learned.  SQL/web based databases are a
coming technology for those libraries that are heavily involved with web
development.  I am yet not THAT knowledged on the topic, but believe I
will be as soon as I see one in action and do some more reading.

If I am not mistaking, this is a method of maintaining a document database
that is searchable via the web.  This makes life easier in that you do not
have to creat seperate pages for every document, but you just have one
generic web page and a database of documents which are called to the site
or web page.

I hope that I understand this correctly.  If not, if there is anyone out
there that is willing to correct me, PLEASE DO.  I am interested in this
technology and how it works.  In the mean time, I shall continue to learn.
