DESIGN AND IMPLEMENTATION OF A COMPUTERIZED STUDENT RESEARCH PROJECT SEARCH ENGINE SYSTEM ABSTRACT: They are software programs which request pages much like regular browsers do. In addition to reading the contents of pages for indexing spiders also record links.Search engine marketing is marketing via search engines, done through organic search engine optimization, paid search engine advertising, and paid inclusion programs.This paper discusses the design and implementation of a student research project search engine system database application with MYSQL. It also discusses the issues of selecting appropriate database model, interface design, system deployment and maintenance. A projection of record growth in relation to student population and system requirement was carried out in the study. Finally it discusses the applicability of the system in academic institutions. The Programming language used in developing this application is PHP. It is a web based application which runs in all platforms.TABLE OF CONTENTTitle PageCertificationDedicationAcknowledgementTable of contentAbstractCHAPTER ONE: INTRODUCTION1.1.0 GENERAL INTRODUCTION1.2.0 PROBLEM DEFINITION1.3.0 OBJECTIVE OF STUDY1.4.0 RESEARCH JUSTIFICATION1.5.0 RESEARCH METHODOLOGY1.6.0 SCOPE OF THE STUDY1.7.0 DEFINITION OF THE TERMSCHAPTER TWO: LITERATURE REVIEW2.0 INTRODUCTION2.1 BRIEF HISTORY OF SEARCH ENGINE2.2.0 Parts of a Search Engine2.3.0 Computer Robot 2.3.1 Types of Search Engine Queries:2.4.0 Search Engine Marketing2.4.1 Paid Inclusion2.4.2 Pay Per ClickCHAPTER THREE: SYSTEM DESIGN METHODOLOGY3.0 INTRODUCTION3.1.0 SYSTEM REQUIREMENT SPECIFICATION3.2.0 SYSTEM DESIGN3.2.1 LOGICAL DESIGN220.127.116.11 INPUT DESIGN18.104.22.168 OUTPUT DESIGN 22.214.171.124 THE USE CASE DIAGRAMCHAPTER FOUR: SYSTEM IMPLEMENTATION4.1.0 INTRODUCTION4.2.0 CHOICE AND FEATURES OF IMPLEMENTATION LANGUAGE4.3.0 SYSTEM TESTING STRATEGIES4.3.1 UNIT TESTING4.3.2 INTEGRATION TESTING4.4.0 TARGET COMPUTER SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS4.5.0 SOFTWARE MAINTENANCE ISSUES4.5.1 CORRECTIVE MAINTENANCE4.5.2 PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE4.5.3 ADAPTIVE MAINTENANCECHAPTER FIVE: SUMMARY,CONCLUSION AND RECOMMENDATION5.0 SUMMARY5.2 RECOMMENDATIONREFERENCEAPPENDIX : CODE LISTINGCHAPTER ONEINTRODUCTION1.7.0 GENERAL INTRODUCTIONIt is safe to say that most activities such as storing of research material carried out in mostuniversities in Nigeria are done manually. Therefore, there is a lot of strain on the individuals running the research library. A research search system is simply softwaredeveloped for retrieving of research material without going through the stress of movingfrom one shelf to another in the research library. These activities takes place in the librarywith the help of a library administrator. The goal of this research work is to provide a solution to the problem of a research library,by designing a computerized system which is user-friendly and GUI-oriented that will becompatible with the existing manual systems. The software to be developed will solve theproblem of sorting and retrieving of research materials. 1.8.0 PROBLEM DEFINITIONProblems associated with research system when manually handled by library staff in most University include:⦁ Research/Projects are sorted and stored manually on its appropriate shelf⦁ Retrieving of research/projects material takes a lot of time depending of the number of topics involves.⦁ Loss or damage of any of the research material may leads to loss of a resources information ⦁ Too cumbersome and time consuming to maintain 1.9.0 OBJECTIVE OF STUDYThe objective of this study is to develop an application that will ease the stress associatedwith the existing manual system as earlier stated, while focusing on a research searchsystem.This study aims to achieve the following;i. To create a database management system (DBMS) which store research material and provides security for the stored data.ii. To provide quick and efficient means retrieving student research/projects material through a search systemiii. At the completion of this work, this system will improve the management of a research library which can be uses as a model in building digital research library.1.10.0 RESEARCH JUSTIFICATIONThe proposed research can be justified by providing answers to the questions below:i. Does the research extend the understanding of the phenomenon being investigated?ii. Does it elaborate, extend or fill in gaps in present knowledge?iii. Does the research question require data that is assessable or attainable at a reasonable cost or effort? iv. Finally, will it give the expected results result?After putting these aforementioned questions into consideration, I believe that this research is worth doing. 1.11.0 RESEARCH METHODOLOGYIn order to realize the objectives of this research, it is important to apply adequate strategy in achieving the set goals. The methodology employed in the course of this study is to first outline the set of requirements to be met by the proposed system, where information related to the research work will be derive from the area of study; then envisage and implement the design of the system, using Unified Modeling Language (UML), along the lines of an object-oriented approach.1.12.0 SCOPE OF THE STUDYThe project is limited to Design and implementation of a computerized students search project searching engine.1.7.0 DEFINTION OF THE TERMS1. HyperText:Hypertext is text displayed on a computer display or other electronic devices with references (hyperlinks) to other text that the reader can immediately access, or where text can be revealed progressively at multiple levels of detail (also called StretchText).2. Architecture: The art and science of designing buildings and (some) nonbuilding structures. 3. FTP: The File Transfer Protocol (FTP) is the standard network protocol used for the transfer of computer files between a client and server on a computer network.4. Search Engine:search engine is a software system that is designed to search for information on the World Wide Web. 5. Bot:An Internet bot, also known as web robot, WWW robot or simply bot, is a software application that runs automated tasks (scripts) over the Internet.6. UML Diagram:They describe both the static structure and the dynamic behavior of a system..
