Dilip's Music Database Program

Welcome to Dilip's music database; we invite you to browse our collection. We view this as a community-managed collection, so you can also contribute something new or delete items already in the collection.

This is meant as a quick project for a web programming course so it is merely illustrative. However, the program could easily be extended to use a real database and include authentication so only registered users could make updates.
