The text Database Management Systems, published by WCB/McGraw-Hill, is aimed at first and second courses in database systems at the undergraduate and graduate levels. The Minibase relational DBMS was developed in conjunction with this text. The Coral system is also used in courses that deal with logic databases at several schools.
