Well, after careful consideration I have purchased the Mac version of Book Collector and even though I haven't had time to catalogue many books it does seem to serve my purpose, and more!
Last night I showed it to a friend who 'is in the know' about cataloguing systems, library databases etc and he was quite impressed with all the options and the user friendly set-up. "
I have only been using it for a couple of weeks and my main PC died so I installed the programme on my laptop. At first it wouldn't run but then I found your FAQ page and the explanation of the bkclck file and hey presto it works.
How very civilised that you appreciate that people genuinely do want and need to use your software on different machines with no malicious reasons.
Keep up the good work - Merry Christmas."
I've used it to create a library for our school. It acts as our card catalogue and it is wonderful! Its super easy for teachers to use, making finding books by subject a breeze. Its also easy to manage "checked out" books through its Loan feature. Its been quick and easy to add new books automatically or manually, and makes taking inventory a breeze.
I love that I can tag books by their topics to create easy reference themed lists for display; Poetry, Valentines Day, Feelings, ABCs, . . . . I am by no means a computer whiz, knowing only the "basics" on my Mac, but this program was easy to learn, modify for our needs, and teach to others. Their manual and online support are thorough, quick, and strait forward enough for even me to follow.
The school administration has been so impressed with how organized and slick looking this program is. It really makes me look like I'm doing way more than I actually am : )
I love, Love, LOVE it!Now I can't wait to organize all of my books at home!

I had been using a different music catalogue programme but was not happy with it and ended up not doing anything to it, user friendly it was not.
The main reason I am so pleased is that I has already purchased a cue cat scanner earlier this year for cataloguing my books on an American website, but now I can keep it all in-house.
Once again thanks from a happy cataloguer."
When I finally found the book collector online it easily provided all the answers that I needed. Because of its adaptability and customizing options it was the perfect solution to my cataloging needs."
Thank you for an excellent product that has provides me with the tools to organize my reading & book list. I am using Standard edition Book Collector and used it for for free until I reached the 100 book limit. I then found I did not want to live without it.
I also appreciate the prompt response to my questions from customer support. Many Thanks!"
