For all those with ginormous collections of books, hehemm, homeschoolers…here is a terrific way to organize them. Collectorz.com offers database software to organize your books, music, movies, comics, games, mp3s, and photos. We received Book Collector for our review. Just input your ISBN or scan it using one of three barcode scanners offered by the company. Up pops cover art, author, publisher, title, publication date, plot summary and other book data from the company’s online data base. You can then edit and add details, such as purchase price, where you bought it, who you loaned it to, your own plot summary and notes and just about anything else you want to remember about the book.
For just $29.95 plus $19.95 for the most economical scanner, you can have your books organized better than the local library’s. You can also create and export a page to your website or blog, to share or sell your books.
Anyone with a large media collection will benefit from using these databases and maybe organizing your collection on the shelf a bit. How many times have you racked your brain, knowing you saw that book somewhere but can’t remember where? Simply add a location note to your list, and you’ll find it in no time! Ebooks and audio books can also be cataloged with Book Collector.
I’m having so much fun, I think I’ll try photos next. Now if they would just come up with one for home videos…
