What's new in Book Connect?

Book Connect

New: Use Book Connect to keep track of loaned books!

July 20th, 2017

New in Book Connect: Loan/Return books and a Loan Manager feature!

You can now loan books in Book Connect: just find and select a book (or select multiple with the Select tool), and click the “Loan” button at the top!

Loan Manager

Click the wrench icon, top right, and then Loan Manager to access the new Loan Manager where you can see all your loaned out items, and directly return them. Alternatively you can also use CLZ Barry to scan an ISBN of a book, find it in your outstanding loans, and return it.

In the Loan Manager, you can click on a loaned item to modify the loan date, due date, return date, loaner and notes about the loan.

New:

  • Loan books by selecting a couple in your list, or by viewing the details of a book, and then click “Loan” at the top.
  • Return books straight from the loan manager or by scanning their ISBN barcodes with CLZ Barry.
  • Check outstanding loans and loan history in the Loan Manager.
  • Edit outstanding or returned loans by clicking on them.

All loan information can also be synced to Book Collector for Windows. We will also be adding the syncing of loan information to CLZ Books for iOS and Android and Book Collector for Mac.
