I was wondering if anybody knew of any small scripts to manage internal libraries (books)? It just needs to be a really simple system with the following features

  • Contain a database that users can easily add to
  • Allow users to request books from other users, even if it's just via email
  • Some kind of field to indicate whether the book is being loaned out

I've had a google myself but the results I've found so far have either been for personal libraries or for actual libraries that wouldn't be suitable for this project.

I'm aware this wouldn't be very hard for somebody with some basic PHP knowledge to knock up but we don't currently have the capacity to do this in-house or pay for an external developer.
