EDIT: I found some data from NCES about Public University Libraries.

I am trying to define measures for building the warehouse? I like this data but i am trying to figure out how to use this with other libraries. Any ideas on the measures. I know its supposed to be quanitfiable and numberical generally.

I am also trying to determine what elements to use a predictable in analysis.
If someone could look at it and give me some advice i would appreciate it.



For measures i was thinking about using currency (dollars), and fiscal year.

I'd start here to get a very good "In A Nutshell" overview.

I actually need more stuff like this. I have had a very hard time finding just basic information relating to DB/DW. My first assignment for a data warehousing class was to find all the basic information i could on the subject. MY results seemed like they differed.

Speaking of "bumps" and as you said, this IS for a class. Not intending or meaning any disrespect whatsoever, the questions you're asking make it sound like you either didn't attend the classes or didn't pay attention at all. All of the questions that you're asking should have been covered by the instructor in the classes or will be covered by the instructor if this project was announced at the beginning of the class.

RBAR is pronounced ree-bar and is a Modenism for Row-By-Agonizing-Row.
First step towards the paradigm shift of writing Set Based code:
Stop thinking about what you want to do to a row... think, instead, of what you want to do to a column.
If you think its expensive to hire a professional to do the job, wait until you hire an amateur. -- Red Adair

Just to add to what Jeff said. Since this is for a class we would like to see you doing the work and using this forum to show what you have done and where you stuck and need some help figuring out what you should do next to solve your problem.

It doesn't do you any good for us to do the work for you. You will learn more by doing the work and just asking us for help when you run into problems.

Cool

That website is full of it, I can't think of a better resource for datawarehouse design - what are you missing here?
