Accessibility Lending Library - ALL
The Accessibility Lending Library is a community based website that houses products that have been reviewed from university sources and occupational therapists that are accessible friendly. Not only is it a database of information, it allows users to add reviews and learn how to modify products of their own, learn where to purchase them, or rent one from a local Accessiblity Lending Library.
On the Home page is the mission statement, access to all content and the full breakdown of the functionality of the website. In addition the welcome image is customized with the user and a custom greeting.
Here, Should the user choose, is the process to become part of the Lending Libraries community. Each user is asked for full name, user name of their choosing, and password. This allows for consistent access to products that are functionally relevant for each user and require less time to fine when directly linked to their personal profile.
After clicking 'Sign Up', the page slides over to the login page where they can access their profile page and setup their attributes.
Should there be any issues there are prompts to warn users as to why that may be. Currently blank information as well as unmatched passwords are used as validation checks.

All users should be able to choose which item is best suited for their specific needs, and ask additional questions.
The Search algorhitm was built to find different data not requiring the full search terms. It also detects if you are logged in, or where you are coming from on the website and searches accoridngly. ie. clicking products will load the inventory pre-filtered to your attributes.
- This is all built utilizing a single search function with a logic function that constructs different types of inquiries or locations of search becomes plug in play. No need for a myriad of search functions and built for simplicity and reduced code burden.
