    Cataloguing Software

    There was an old thread about cataloguing software, but times have changed and things disappear.

    I have a few thousand books I would like to catalogue; many of them are quite old, long before ISBN was even thought of; some even before electricty was thought of. While free would be nice, reasonably priced is ok.

    And, while I am at it, how about my CD and LP collections?

    John,

    I have an Access DB that you're welcome to if you have Access to run it. I use it for my CD & Books. It will require either some modification or creative thinking since it is based on ISBN. It has a form for inputting books but you'd need to clone it to work on the Music table.
    May the Forces of good computing be with you!

    Have a look at Readerware not free but quite inexpensive on what it could do. Having a bar code reader can speed up cataloging.

    or Try this free web base book cataloging application at LibraryThing.

    Maybe you can also have a look at Collectorz.com.

    Well, I have Open Office. I'm too cheap to pay the bucks for Billy's software.
