Abstract

AGSO's Rock Store Database, or 'ROCSTOR' for short, is a new corporate database to assist with the organisation and management of AGSO's Fyshwick Rock Store facility. It is designed to efficiently catalogue and locate the contents of the Rock Store and to assist with loans of material, both to AGSO staff and bona fide external clients. It has a link to the OZROX Field Geology Database for the details of sample location, geology, lithology, etc. ROCSTOR is the first AGSO database to be implemented as a proper client/server database application, with graphical screen windows that take full advantage of the Microsoft Windows environment (and, if necessary, other GUI environments as well).This Record provides a full description of the database and is also a guide to users. All screen windows, their fields and operating procedures are described in some detail, and a full schema for the database is given as an appendix.
