Right now the content editors are just adding these books and articles by hand. Other projects have gotten in the way, and now they are a year behind on the references, and a bunch of new ones have been added to the other site already. I was hired to research how to automate the process if possible.
This is what I would like to make possible:
- Updates the page as soon as a new reference from the other site is added so we don't have to worry about adding new references by hand.
- Adds all the references that we already missed automatically. The latest entry is from Jun 2013 and the last we have is from April. There are quite a few sources that we missed, and the list on the other website is pretty disorganized.
I think PHP will be the best language in order to do this by, but I am also open to suggestions with XML and RSS. I'm also not sure we can do this without some type of server...Since we don't have one.
