summary Although the theory and practice of using database management systems in managing information has been a well recognized area of research in other disciplines such as business, urban planning, and engineering, architectural researchers have only occasionally explored the implications of these tools in structuring architectural knowledge. Among these are studies that look at facilities management aspects of databases as well as project management aspects mostly focusing on document management issues 6 . While visual databases have been the focus of other work, the term "database" has been used in architectural research sometimes to indicate any set of underlying data and at other times to indicate an actual relational database management system. Inconsistent use of terminology has led to difficulties in developing established theory regarding the use and development of database management systems for architectural problems. While such systems can be very powerful in structuring design knowledge, in architectural education the only place where their potential has been recognized is in the digitizing of slide libraries with the intention to make them accessible through electronic retrieval and viewing systems, which has mostly been seen within the purview of slide librarians with little interest from the faculty.
