Project Description
Art Book Review UGC


I plan to create a user-generated content site focused on books under the subject of art.
The site will offer a rating and review system, descriptions and photos of the books including ISBN, title, author, year published and tags/keywords. Additionally there will be a section for the user to state whether they own the book or rented/borrowed the book and if they have a digital or physical copy. This area would be like a personal book shelf. If the user owns the book physically, there shall be a little area to state if the book is lent to anyone so they can keep track of their books. In this book shelf area, will be another area like a description for notes about what they think the book is good for, what they may have used it for, and for any nostalgic notes about the book to make it more personal.
The target community of the site would be for people who are interested in reading art books, studying a art subject, artists or art historians.

The books will be searchable via their titles, ISBN, author, and tags/keywords. The tags/keywords should include artists, art theories, art historians, movements which feature in the book. This should help people find books relevant to their interests or studies. Another feature will be to have a list of countries, on the books page, where you choose your country and it will take you to the Amazon page of chosen country. If a book is not on the site, but the user would like to put it on, the system for this would be for them to add the book filling in each section needed on a web form.
