Home Library Software - catalog your book library
Or... use them both, as perfect companions!
Both CLZ Books and Book Connect can be used on their own, as a stand-alone solution. But these tools really come to life when used together, as they are great companions.
While away from your computer use CLZ Books on your phone, then use Book Connect at home, to work on your database on a big screen, with a real keyboard.
Of course, you can sync your database between them through our CLZ Cloud solution.
Also still available: Book Collector for Windows
Book Collector is our legacy desktop software. Old-skool software that you install on your own computer, with your data stored locally.
Using Book Collector is only recommended for advanced Windows users, who know how to install/update software, manage folder and file permissions, configure firewall/security software, make their own backups, etc...

Update 6/23. Tech help prompt and responsive and App continues to be improved. Took 3 years to enter the thousands of books in our home library. Great having them at our fingertips. Now no second guessing about whether we've bought a book or read it before so, in addition to the unparalleled convenience our having the library on our phones we've saved more than it cost in not doubling up.
I have been a very satisfied customer for many years. It is so useful and fun! I never fall behind in keeping my new book purchases entered because with the phone app I can do it in 30 seconds or less!
I LOVE being able to scroll through my book library by viewing the covers! While reading a book, I can add personal notes for future reference and to make the book more searchable for me later ( like a note as to who recommended the book to me)
AND whenever I am having a conversation and want to tell someone about a book that is relevant, I quickly do a search of my collection ( on the app), even if I can’t remember the exact title or author, usually a key word is enough to find it.
Would you believe that my personal library is over 4,500 books? I would be overwhelmed without the Bookcollector products. It is so fun to have the info available right at my fingertips on my cellphone! And to know it is safely stored on the cloud. But even if you only have 100 books (or comics or music), I highly recommend CollectorZ. Truly a great value from a wonderful thoughtful supportive company with years of expert development!
As a blind computer user with Apple’s screen reader, I am always so grateful to find such a high degree of accessibility in a program like this. It is a blessing to be able to manage my home library without the need for much sighted help.
It is a credit to your programmers that the program is accessible. They obviously took care to meet the guidelines for its support. I suppose that not many blind folks care about books. My blindness came on in my 30s so I had a house full of treasures I wanted to recall, organize and pass along to my son. Audio books have kept me sane but there is nothing like a book in hand and turning a page. I fear before too long too few will be able to know that pleasure.
I have enjoyed working with you. Your communication skills are outstanding. I hope that whoever pays you recognizes the value in that .
If you are ever in the USA and near North Carolina, Do let me know. I would like to thank you in person and buy you dinner for all this effort on my behalf.
One reason your software is such a gift to me is that about 11 years ago while logging information on about 1500 books on index cards and on my computer, a flood hit our area and our home was affected. I lost about 700 books to the flood and never went back to update my personal library. Since that loss, I’ve purchased many more books to add to those remaining – and inadvertently bought some of them more than once, hence my need for better organization of my books – and with your software I’m quickly updating my records.
Within a short period of time I used my scanner to log nearly 400 books and have asked my granddaughter to come and help me with the rest of the project in a few weeks after she graduates from high school and before she heads off to college. We look forward to working on this project together. What a treat it is to watch those books jump onto the screen with all pertinent information, just by using a scanner and making a few clicks on my keyboard to save what popped up.
I was pleasantly surprised when seeing more book and author details than I was aware of, too – including links for information on Wiki... The list is great and has such a great user-friendly sorter by title or author. When browsing around and clicking on the Images tab and seeing the books lined up on book shelves, I actually leaned back and laughed with surprising joy. Clicking on the Cards tab showed me the little cards complete with each book’s information, and I was amazed.
I’ll highly recommend your software to others and want to thank you so much for this delightful program.
