 ## Data Preparation
 
-To submit a training job, users need to convert raw data (e.g., images, text
-documents) into records that can be recognized by SINGA. SINGA uses a DataLayer
-to load these records into memory and uses ParserLayer to parse features (e.g.,
-image pixels and labels) from these records. The records could be organized and
-stored using many different ways, e.g., using a light database, or a file or
-HDFS, as long as there is a corresponding DataLayer that can load the records.

 ### DataShard
 
+To create shard for your own data, users may need to implement or modify the following files
+  
+- common.proto
+- create_shard.cc
+- Makefile
 
+**1. Define record**
+
+Record class is inherited from Message class whose format follows Google protocol buffers.
Please refer to the [Tutorial][1]. 
+
+Your record will be defined in a file, SINGAfolder/src/proto/common.proto
+
+(a) Define the record
+
+    message UserRecord {
+        repeated int userVAR1 = 1; // unique id
+        optional string userVAR2 = 2; // unique id
+        ...
+    }
+
+(b) Declare user own record in Record
+
+    message Record {
+        optional UserRecord user_record = 1; // unique id
+        ...
+    }
+
+(c) Compile SINGA
+
+    cd SINGAfolder
+    ./configure
+    make
+
+
+**2. Create shard**
+
+(a) Create a folder for dataset, e.g., we call it "USERDATAfolder".
+
+(b) Source files for creating shard will be in SINGAfolder/USERDATAfolder/
+
+- For example of RNNLM, create_shard.cc is in SINGAfolder/examples/rnnlm
+
+(c) Create shard
+
+    singa::DataShard myShard( outputpath, mode);
+
+- `string outputpath`, where user wants to create shard.
+- `int mode := kRead | kCreate | kAppend`, is defined in SINGAfolder/include/utils/data_shard.h
+
+
+**3. Store record into shard**
+
+(a) xxx
+
+    singa::Record record;
+    singa::UserRecord *myRecord = record.mutable_user_record();
+
+`mutable_user_record()` method is automatically generated after compiling SINGA at Step 1-(c).
+
+(b) Set/Add values into the record
+
+    myRecord->add_userVAR1( int_val );
+    myRecord->set_userVAR2( string_val );
+
+(c) Store the record to shard
+
+    myShard.Insert( key, myRecord );
+- `String key`, will be a unique id for a message 
+
+**Example of RNNLM**
+
+You can refer to RNNLM example at SINGAfolder/example/rnnlm/
+
+    message SingleWordRecord {
+        optional string word = 1;
+        optional int32 word_index = 2;
+        optional int32 class_index =3;`
+    }
+
+    message Record {
+        optional SingleWordRecord word_record = 4;
+    }
+
+    make download
+    to download raw data from https://www.rnnlm.org
+
+In this example, rnnlm-0.4b is used.
+ 
+    make create
+
+to process input text file, create records, and store it into shard
+ 
+We create 3 shards for training data, which are class_shard, vocab_shard, word_shard.
