  26. 26. Duke Craigslist (working title!)<br />Situation-The students only get a small percentage of the original buying price when they sell their textbooks to the Duke texbook store. <br />Solution-We woud like to create a website that resembles Craigslist, but specializes in textbook trading between students. It would be a Duke-specific website. <br />Competition- Amazon, eBay, craigslist, textswap, and Dukelist<br />Advantage- Shipping the books cost time and money (vs. amazon, ebay, craigslist)- Customized for different courses / ease of use / popularity (vs. Dukelist)<br />Concerns - Popularity will be controlled by ease of use.
