AUC student builds book exchange website for students
A new book exchange website allows students to post books for sale and to track books they need. The website was set up by AUC student Krishna Shukla, who wanted a more effective way of finding books for sale than through Facebook.
Users can post books for sale on the website or 'follow' a book they need. There is an option to connect the book postings to a Facebook profile, but it is also possible to sign up via email. Whenever a book becomes available to buy, followers of the book receive a notification in their Facebook timeline or by email. The same goes when a buyer shows interest in a book posted on the site.
The website is supported by five student associations at Science Park, as well as the University Library.
