Required reading for next class: Database refresher


 The next five classes will be about getting structure and exploiting it during search. Much of this material straddles IR one one end--where we assume no structure; and databases on the other--where we assume data is fully structured. It will thus be very helpful to have some rudimentary background in relational databases.

If you haven't taken a course in databases, you might want to look at the following set of "refresher" slides for databases--so you have enough familiarity with the concepts.
