Latest software updates

I would like to congratulate you on recent changes. The new design for the Book Connect is excellent, it is cleaner and crisper, plus it is faster to use. That is always a plus. Additionally, the changes to searching in the Core are beneficial as well, much faster, especially the new integrated search blank (author and title together), plus the way we can now see more information about each book in the Core. That is a big help in selecting a good volume out of many. Bravo! — Debbie Cox on January 10, 2018

Always have my list with me
I have this software for my 800+ books. A great way to always have my list with me, to prevent the occasional "double purchase" of a book. I recommend to you for your library. — Thomas L Hiegel (USA) on Book Collector

Makes the lending of books a breeze
As Library Coordinator for our chapter of a national environmental organization I use Book Collector to stay organized. The software makes the lending of books a breeze. We have over 230 books which some of your respondents would scoff at but, since I haul the books to monthly meetings, it is plenty big enough.
I value Book Collector highly and rely on it to keep track of all details of running a much used chapter library. Thank you and keep up the good work! — Virginia Watson (USA) on Book Collector

A great product
We are using this at our car club Library with 5000+ books and 500+ lenders. A great product, at a very reasonable price, easy to use, easy to maintain and runs on machines with minimal resources.
I recommend this product to anyone wanting a maintain a small library....and I am an IT manager at a library for a living. — Neville Butler (Australia) on Book Collector

Paid for itself
Fabulous program that's already paid for itself in saved duplication. As a portable catalogue of my library I couldn't ask for better. The seamless integration between phone app and desktop is fabulous. — Micheal O Doibhilin (Ireland) on Book Collector

The perfect solution
Book Collector is the perfect solution for anyone who loves books. It’s extensive functions allow tracking of anything and everything about a book and how it is used, but not daunting if its only purpose is to manage a home library. The website is easy to use and the online manual is well-organized and clearly written.

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. Truly. — Leslie Stephens (USA) on Book Collector
