As my avocation, I donate my time to non-for profits. The one I’m currently helping wants to have a secure section from which the members can view a sort-able database of the titles, authors, topics (plural) of the books in the pvt library of this organization.
I see that database creation is part of the features of dreamhost’s packages but beyond that, I cannot find any documentation.
- I can have someone create an Access database of the required info. Can that be uploaded into the database on the website?
- Where/how do I then create/nab the code necessary to allow the members to select the info they want sorted out of the table for the library?
- Could I then have a interactive form where one can use their e-mail address or some such to “check out” the title they want? The physical library is open to all members w/ out the librarian’s needing to be there, but she checks all books back in, so she would then have to be able to do this on the website as well as physically re-shelving the books.
