The Book Exchange 3.0 Is Here!

submitted by Joe on Thursday, September 12 at 10:58 AM

The clunky old book exchange is gone. And so are the books that were in it. Sorry guys, you'll have to re-add your books. However, I have spent a week designing and writing a new book exchange.

With the new book exchange you should find that adding books is much easier, the only inputs required are the ISBN, condition, and price of the book. The title, author, edition and all other relevant fields are queried from the Library of Congress' z39.50 gateway server. I have also linked your school tool information to make searching, posting and signing up for book notifications easier. It should be a cleaner interface all around and easier to use.

As with any new addition there are bound to be a few bugs. Let us know if you find one!

Is there a problem with the counter? I added 4 books last night and it still says that there are 12 books listed.

Otherwise, awesome job.

I have the book count cached on that page because that page requires some very intensive queries and I was trying to get the load time down a little bit. It should update it every three hours.
