AddrBook v1.0 is a simple, yet flexible web-based address book system. It lets people search the address book, look up entries alphabetically, or add themselves to the directory. (You may also disallow users from adding entries.) The admin user may delete entries, and change the admin password. In addition, when setting it up, you may choose to disable access to any of the search or lookup features and keep those password-protected.
In the setup, you may choose what fields you'd like to have in your address book. By default, the fields are Last Name, First Name, Address, City, State, Zip, Phone, Email, and Website. You may add or subtract fields for your own purposes. For example, to make a sort of Gradebook, you might have Last Name, First Name, Student ID, Class, Quiz 1 Grade, Quiz 2 Grade, Exam 1 Grade, etc. NOTE: Remember to be aware of privacy issues -- if you do use this for a gradebook, you might want to consider NOT using the students' names. :) To use this for, say, a list of book ratings, you might make the fields Title, Author, Publisher, Date, Rating.
There is a working version of AddrBook online for you to try out, as well as a demo of the admin interface. WARNING: These are public demo's, folks. Some people enjoy adding entries with language which may not be appropriate for all viewers, and since the demo is used to demonstrate functionality, is not censored for this type of thing.
