our current project description is...
This is a summary. See the attached Full specification .
WARNING: NO INCREASES IN FEES WILL OCCUR ONCE YOU ACCEPT THE CONTRACT. SO READ THE SPEC, THEN BID.
This site will manage the connection between a user's local library and their wishlist on Amazon on a website.
When they register, they enter their local library and user id for amazon (if necessary).
The system then will report what is available on their wishlist and what is available locally. It can update them via email when the book is available.
Now none of this is new. There are plenty of scripts available to check if a book on Amazon is available at the local library. This just adds the website layer to manage it in the background.
See how this is done using a bookmarklet [url removed, login to view]
You will need to create an account management site and jobs that run in the background on a server that will go through each users amazon book wishlist and report when it is available.
If the library system allows, it will also reserve available books on request.
