    - The data dictionary is structured in tables and views, just like other database data.

    - All the data dictionary tables and views for a given database are stored in that database's SYSTEM tablespace.

    - Not only is the data dictionary central to every Oracle database, it is an important tool for all users, from end users to application designers and database administrators.

    - To access the data dictionary, you use SQL statements.

    - Because the data dictionary is read-only, you can issue only queries (SELECT statements) against the tables and views of the data dictionary.
