The Internet Want List is an easy way for Campus Bookstores to source their book want-list with online sources. It accepts a list of books, and target prices (less than wholesale, including shipping), and searches major sites like Amazon and to find great deals. It then compiles a list of results and homogenizes them into a single display for easy cross-site comparisons. This project also utilized distributed computer to processes and re-process all requested books several times a day so that fresh results were always available even on book lists that had thousands of books.
