There are many libraries in Nablus that readers can go to. These libraries have so many books and events. Also these libraries could be geographically apart and this might cause real problems such as transportation. There is no flexible way to reach all these libraries regarding information about books and events at the same time. That means libraries are connectionless, thus it will be very useful to have a connecting portal for all major libraries in order to help readers to save their effort and time . Periscope is responsive website that we aim at developing. It provides innovative features to keep users up-to-date with details about registered libraries. Our system allows any interested library to register and enter its data registration (book, events…etc). It consists of large database of various books and events in each library. Any user can get lists of books and events for all libraries connected to our system. Also it is possible to search for a specific book according to many parameters such as name, category, ISPN number…etc. We will help user to find the suitable library that has the requested book in short time and less effort by using maps and user reviews. Libraries can publish information about events such as art, science, membership events and workshops. Other features may include library capacity as well as real time overcrowding hours. There is an automatic reminder and notification for book returns. Also our website cares about user's comfort by providing a ranking system of these libraries based on user's reviews, number of books and so on. In our project we decide to build a responsive web design using HTML5, CSS and bootstrap in addition to WAMP server and laravel as php framework. This responsible website can run over various devices (pc, tablet, mobile). And we decide to build a specific mobile application for certain features of our project.
