Lecture materials

Currently there is no text covering data integration. There is a text Relational and XML Data Exchange covering data exchange topics, it appeared in September 2010. It can be ordered from Morgan and Claypool's Synthesis Lectures website - you have to click on the pdf link - but it appears that at the moment the University has no institutional subscription, so if you want it, you will have to pay $25).

All course lecture notes are posted below.
