Every few months, students in the US and abroad face the expensive and time consuming task of buying textbooks for the classes they are enrolled in. Despite the advent of the internet and social networking websites the ability for peer to peer textbook exchange is still limited. There are few if any dedicated websites for general purpose peer to peer textbook transfer for every university and college.
The project I have created for my Senior Project is a peer to peer solution for buying and selling textbooks on US college campuses. The underlying idea is to create an authentication system that allows users attending US based universities to create accounts with their user names being their assigned “.edu” email addresses. I have decided to name the website/mobile application I create “CampusBookShare”.
