There is an annual generation of used books otherwise termed ‘second hands book for sale on campus (SHBSC) which are available after students have passed on to the next class during their study. This may become not immediately useful to that student but remains very useful to the upcoming fresher who may not be able to purchase brand new books especially textbooks. This becomes an alternative source to acquire same required knowledge at very much lower cost and affordable one in that case. Therefore, there is need to come up with new technologies to facilitate the gathering of numerical data which spells out the type and nature, place and time including the quantity of such second hand books available. The software clarifies the meaning of the data by highlighting the patterns that a human can easily detect while also reorganizing the data to be visually pleasing. Users can set of heuristics to measure how closely the reorganized data matching the user’s specifications and intention for the appearance of the data, and to assess the program’s effectiveness in making the data easier to understand. Using a university campus as an example, this research investigates student needs and consequent satisfaction with the creation of a website, that provides easy access for students to sell off and/or buy books and other items, and explores various methods for determining where to locate them as well. This campus currently has great need for additional web services and is required to meet the need for ‘second hand books’ disposal to potential student customers.
