About This Site

This site was created as the final project for LIS 458: Database Management, Fall 2016, in the Simmons College School of Library and Information Science. I designed and created a MySQL database, wrote the queries that retrieve information from the database, and built this site using PHP, HTML and CSS.

Mission statement: The purpose of the Indie Lacquerbase is to provide a central location for indie polish brands to maintain up-to-date information about their products, and to allow consumers to browse across a variety of brands and products. Brands will have improved visibility, and customers will make better-informed purchasing decisions.

Here is the entity-relationship diagram for the database underlying this site (click to enlarge):
