Recall that databases are a quick and easy way to retrieve small pieces of information, contained within a large mass of records or data. While you may not realize it, you probably use a database on a daily basis, and databases have grown to be a very important part of our everyday lives.
For example, when you rent a movie from the local video store, they most likely use a database to retrieve your information. When you hand them your card to check out a movie, the database pulls up your information, and assigns the movie to your name in the database. The database makes this process simple, quick, and accurate.
In a 1-page paper, explain one way that you use a database; this can be something as simple as renting a video like the example above. Describe how you use the database, and how you think the database makes that process easier. In addition, if you could redesign the database you described, how would you do it and what changes would you make?
