Abstract: The issue of managing digital resources has become a major concern for educational and research institutions expanding with research laboratories, schools and departments. Some of these institutions have a major challenge as to how to manage huge quantities of educational resources required for research, teaching and learning. It is due to this challenge that this paper sought to design and implement a digital resource management system on the Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS). The main model implemented in the development of the system was the incremental and iterative model. The development of the application took into consideration the user requirements and what the system sought to achieve after implementation. The system’s architecture is divided into various levels and these are the user, systems management, data storage and infrastructural levels. The development of this application was focused on the systems management level. The system integration was achieved by connecting MYSQL database server with HDFS through the utilization of sqoop. Security features were implemented on the system to protect the system from attack. The system was tested to ensure that all the modules created were communicating perfectly and the system was producing the expected results.
