Presale Q about possible scenario 2 Weeks, 2 Days ago Karma: 0  
Hello.

Before buying Pro version I would like to know if it's possible to use this component for this scenario: A group of registered users would like to enter personally owned books for lending between themselves, that is - they should be able to create something like sub-libraries within main library.

Q1: If one of them enters the book and another user owns the same book, is it possible to assign another user to the same book thus increasing quantity or is it possible to copy information of the book and register it as separate book for the second user? This is to avoid reentering of existing information.
Q2: Is it possible for users to lend a book from each other without confirmation from library admin and even without notifying him?
Q3: as I understand, users are able to enter books and use above mentioned scenario from frontend without installing and using Community Builder?

Hello

Our book management software permit manage books, permit manage authors, but I not understand what you mean under "sub-libraries within main library" ?

is it possible to assign another user to the same book thus increasing quantity
Sorry, this is impossible, when you move some book to lend - you move some exactly book. Every book has self owner and has self lend history.
Every user (or admin) self add book and all info about book.
With help Amazon API or openlibrary.org API - you may fetch some info about book

Q2: Is it possible for users to lend a book from each other without confirmation from library admin and even without notifying him?
Book Library - only interface for manage books or for manage lend. Some body must give real book. Approve may do as admin and as book owner. You may configure - notify to owner( to admin) when some body create rent request.

Q3: as I understand, users are able to enter books and use above mentioned scenario from frontend without installing and using Community Builder?
Yes, if admin permit this

Ok, I got it - so it's possible to have a library with different owners owning different books and lending them from each other.

The only question remains is this - I think you are aware that a lot of books are not included neither in Amazon, neither in openlibrary.org, especially in small countries.

So if one user provides information for the book and another user has exactly same book in his possession, would it be possible to copy details of the book already present in Ordasoft library (but not on Amazon or other public source) and to assign a copy of this book to yourself? Using ISBN or other identification method, but taking info from inner database.

This way in library two or more different copies of the same book would exist, but they would have different owners.

How in Ordasoft book library software you may clone books only from admin area.

admin has access to all books so he can clone every book.

If this fill important for you, Please write to OrdaSoft contact form (ordasoft.com/contact-us-form) with full details description, how all must look and work, and we will give to you quota.
