JSON has been used widely these days for data exchange and even storage. New data management systems beyond SQL (NoSQL, or Not Only SQL) have been developed to handle semi-structure and unstructured data. In this project, the team was charged with implementing a MongoDB database of Google Books data that will be used in a new course. The team exported the data using Google Books API, cleaned and loaded the data to a MongoDB database, and complete various data processing and administration tasks. A web-based application was also developed to demonstrate the use of MongoDB use in web applications.

The IT department started an initiative to track graduates' placement and career information. The idea was to retrieve the data from LinkedIn, store them in a custom designed database, and produce queries and reports. A team of students have researched the LinkedIn profile APIs and data structure, designed a relational database, and entered the data. They also conducted some analysis and created reports to address the department need.
