At the beginning of each semester, one of the most important things that a student needs to do is purchase textbooks and references that can assist with assignments and term projects. The easiest way to get these references is to purchase them directly from a college bookstore. However, based on limited resources and space, the quantity and price may not satisfy every student's requirement. The motivation for this project is to address this problem by delivering a web-based system with a clear, elegant and easy to use interface to help students obtain their books in a shorter period of time. It follows a three-tier architecture, including user interface, functional process logic and data access. User and administrative based features are implemented that include user browsing and searching for books, purchasing or renting books, administrator uploading books, overseeing transactions, managing their personal accounts, etc. The report provides instructions on the design, implementation and testing details of this project.
