"The answer will vary somewhat depending on your choice of database and your level of computer expertise.
There are several types of tools available to assist you with this, such as Microsoft Excel, Access, FoxPro?, MySQL; but, in addition, some individuals simply use a Word processor, such as Microsoft Word utilizing tables. These all represent electronic versions of ye ole card catalogue, which many of us used prior to the computer age (eek----that sounds scary!).
There are also a wide variety of books available that explain the basics of database setup and maintenance, i.e. the ""Dummy"" series and the ""Learn such and such in 24 hours...7 days, etc"". Many of these will give you a great start in understanding database basics.
I hope that helps you get started! Good luck!!!
