Over many years I have been researching, collating and writing about about the impact of The Star Wars Saga on almost every conceivable area including art, culture, science, society and film. I have created an archive and database which consists of thousands of articles, catalogs, fliers, photos, art, drawings...basically anything that is printed...from different organizations, books, magazines and individuals.
I have maintained details of each item in a local database called The Star Wars Bibliographic Database. The database is based on Microsoft Access fronted by an interface, which makes it easy to enter relevant information.
My wish now...and especially with new Star Wars movies being produced...is to share this database online allowing fans and researchers alike to discover the wondrous spread and reach of the Star Wars Saga through published works.
This project aim of this project is to publish the database online fallowing for the best possible access, navigation, and updates. The way this is done is very much open to discussion and I have no pre-conceived ideas around the direction or development. My aim is to simply publish the work, expand it and make it useful to the Internet!
Purpose of the Website:
Informational / Online Brochure
This is NOT a job I can pay any money for!
The idea is simply based out of my passion for Science Fiction (and specifically Star Wars), my desire to create something useful and unique, and my inability to code well for the web.
This job would suit someone who shares a passion for Star Wars and really would love to see this work published and extended. It would further suit someone that is keen to show their ability in Web and Database Programming.
I am very happy to discuss co-ownership of the database with whomever is interested.
While most areas of Star Wars have been published and conceived, I have not seen a good Bibliographic Database online...so this would very much be a first.
