This research aims to build a system for electronic documentation for the unit of graduate studies, which is used for managing electronic documents (official books, attachments, and instructions). The system was characterized by the possibility of participating electronic documents between administrative units and scientific departments in the college through the use of distributed database management system (Oracle), as well as the use of multimedia databases for dealing with images and (pdf) files, which represent the instruction manual for graduate work.
System have been analyzed and identify entities and its attributes as well as the relationships between these entities, this model of entities and relationships was used to represent the database, and then convert the model into standard formats relations. Oracle 10g language was used to design distributed database. Finally, the Proposed model was applied to real data obtained from graduate unit in the college, and showed its efficiency in the management of data and official documents used.
