Latest software updates

I have used the book cataloging software for many years to catalogue the many (many) books we have stored in numbered boxes and bags in our loft. I had also catalogued the books belonging to our local Embroidery group. We wanted to make full use of the group’s books during lockdown and with the superb help of the Collectorz support team, we set up a separate Library and included, on separate sheets, books belonging to members who were willing to loan them out. Until face-to-face meetings resume, we have an ad hoc doorstep delivery system in place, supported by the Loan facility within the software.
The CLZ Barry scanner enables members to scan the barcodes of books they are willing to loan and email the ISBN numbers directly from the App to our Librarian for logging. Subject to Covid restrictions, we can work directly with any member who has as many books as me, to load the books directly. It is particularly helpful to be able to sort on technique, subject etc as well as author and title.
The software works and the support team are easy to contact and really helpful. Highly recommended!

Does it all. Cover to Cover
I had tried a few catalogue apps for my book collection. Most were okay, but they didn’t do everything I wanted, or they were too difficult to manoeuvre through, or just too expensive. Then one day, about 7 or 8 years ago, the one I was using just quit working. I couldn’t even get into it to export what I had already entered in. I went online and found out that it was done, no longer supported, and no questions would be answered. So I went online and started looking. It didn’t take long. I found a reference to Book Collector. This was an app that I could download and it looked like it would everything that I wanted. It was a reasonable price, and so I decided to give it a try.
FABULOUS ! FABULOUS ! FABULOUS !
It does everything I need, and does it well, and smoothly, and with over 3500 books on my shelves, that’s important.
Since then I have switched to their cloud service, CLZ Books. I no longer have to use my memory space. I just log in, make entries, deletions or changes and it’s done. The price is still very reasonable. This is the best book cataloguing service of any I have ever used. They also offer apps or cloud service for collectors of Movies, Music, Comics and Games. This team of developers has done and continues to an outstanding job. I would 100% recommend this to anyone who has a library to keep track of. — Ti-Cat Matt on CLZ Books

Best book catalogging tool
Love this app for keeping my library of books on record and well organized. No more duplicates which can be frustrating as well as expensive. I appreciate knowing my database is available to me on my PC and cell phone via the cloud, with no worries about maximum size. I’ve had this software for years and have enjoyed watching the developers continue to expand and improve its capabilities and design for ease of use. They’re always available and very prompt with functional as well as technical issues. I look forward to the future knowing we can rely on their growth and continuance. — halftracker on CLZ Books

Boyfriend’s Library
I have been hand cataloging and boxing up my boyfriend’s library for weeks now. There has to be at least a thousand books, bookshelves in every room. I have found many duplicates because he doesn’t recall which ones he has already bought. Now that I have the CLZ app I am saving so much time and he’ll never buy another duplicate! Loving it! — GourdsbyCarole on CLZ Books

Long time user
I started using book collectorz years ago, probably 10 at least maybe more. I was using the PC desktop version until last year when my computer had a major meltdown. It took me a while but I decided to get an iPad and finally downloaded the mobile version of book collectorz. I figured I would have to redo my entire catalog all over again and I had tons of information. This was the best program I had found, hands down, and I loved updating my catalog.
To my surprise, I found my catalog in CLZ. I don’t have to redo every single book, yay! At the time my library was 6771 books. It was a daunting task to think of having to redo it. I’m thrilled I don’t and only have to add the new books. I love this program. It’s got so much functionality, easy to use, and looks good while doing it!
I recommend this program over anything else you could ever find. — books of kel on CLZ Books

Very Powerful App
We are using this app to catalog our church library. I tried several apps and this is, by far, the most powerful. I’ve been using it for a week and have already cataloged over 1,500 books. In a week they have already had a few updates, just adding little helpful touches. I love that I will be able to post a link to the books in the cloud so people can see what books are available. They can sort and search without actually changing the database. I can even download a .csv file to print labels for all the books. Very responsive customer service! Thanks! — CNK14 on CLZ Books

Fun experience
I had this fun experience of attending a used book sale today where every book was 50 cents. I got my pile together, went off in a corner and entered them all into CLZ. In one batch I could add the specifics of the 50 cent price, the library sale I bought them at and the date. — Maria Stahl (USA) on CLZ Books

Great library experience
More than 15 people who are on our Library Committee and staff have looked at our 1500 book catalog in CLZ Cloud and are very pleased with it. To a person, they have said how user friendly they think it is. I am delighted since there were several people who questioned why we needed a catalog. You know how some older people are about change! I am an older person too but I am thrilled to offer your product as a great improvement to our library experience. Just think, we can check for books in our retirement community's library from the comfort of our own apartments and cottages! — Betty Iwan (USA) on Book Collector

The BEST book cataloging software
I have used many book cataloging softwares ( including Library Thing). Book Collectorz is the best because:
1. It never, ever, ever, ever hangs
2. Customer support is top class
3. Deeply customisable
4. Available and syncs across all platforms
5. Very fast
6. Includes the 'Book Lending' feature
7. Very low cost for such a feature rich and solid software. — Param96 on CLZ Books

Library of about 5,000 books
I have a library of about 5,000 books. Book Collectorz is fast, reliable, flexible, and well-supported (including regular updates). I have used it for 10+ years. Five Bright, Shining Stars. — Sterling Sunley on CLZ Books

User since 2014
I’ve been collecting books my entire life and always wanted a library database like my local library. However, despite my best efforts, cataloging everything in excel and FileMaker Pro took forever and lacked the functionality I craved. I joined the Navy, and while I was in boot camp, my house burned down. My books were in the basement, and were destroyed by the water used to put out the fire. My family looked for a way to easily track my books for insurance purposes, and they found this app. This app answered both their needs and my needs. As I worked to rebuild my library, I kept buying duplicate books since I had a hard time differentiating the books I had lost from the books I had repurchased in my mind. I am now back over 6000 books and counting and I rely heavily on this app as well as the desktop version to keep track of my library. Sure, the core doesn’t have the most accurate or cleaned up data available and many plots are missing, but that allows us the take the data provided and make it our own. It’s a pity they had to change to a subscription service, because whenever I go to book stores or sales, I’m always suggesting CLZ products to my fellow patrons.
The barcode scanner saves me tons of time. — Hale.Yeah on CLZ Books

Greatest software for book lovers
Began with CLZ over 4 years ago. Took time to load in my library, but since then adding new books has been very simple. Updates are frequent and each one has been useful. I love keeping my book lists up to date and especially appreciate not buying duplicates anymore! — halftracker on CLZ Books

Great product!
I have about 3500 books and cannot remember where they all are. After searching extensively for a REASONABLY PRICED product to use to catalogue my library, a friend who is a librarian told me about CLZ. Wonderful! Don’t use it every day, but it is invaluable when I do. — Preachean on CLZ Books

My library
I have been using this app for several years. It is continually improving, and provides for a very comprehensive database of my large number of books. Easy to use, add books, and access details of my library. — Steve Harper on CLZ Books

Excellent way to organize your books
With this app, you will always have the titles of the books you have read or want to read in a very organized and easy to use format. No more going to the library or book store and not remembering if you already read a particular book. — Richard from Nevada on CLZ Books

Book library
The app is truly amazing. It’s intuitive and easy to use. Not only has it allowed me to (finally)stop buying multiple copies of the same book, but I’m now able to find the location of a book in my library quickly. — artbookaddict on CLZ Books

The best book database ever
I have been using it for over 5 years and love it the mobile app is so handy for checking to see if I have the book already in my library. And their support is the first-rate problems solved very quickly. Highly recommend. — woody161051 on CLZ Books

Truly Effective and Intuitive
CLZ Books via CLZ Cloud works seamlessly with the desktop Collectorz Book library management system. Excellent software backed by astonishingly swift and effective technical support. A great company with which to deal. — MikeB1946 on CLZ Books

Keeping track of your books made easy
Great app to keep track of your own books and the ones from friends or Library you’ve read. CLZ Support team actually listens and responds to individual clients as needed. The app continuously improves from one version to the next, based on their expertise and the feedback they get. Worth the investment! — mikki200382 on CLZ Books

Can keep track of all my books
Also it is great that I have the list of book borrowed from the library so I do not bring away duplicates of ones I have already read. — Barbara Leonard on CLZ Books

A great app with brilliant support
This is without doubt my favourite app. It’s visually intuitive, easy to use and enables me to sync my library across multiple devices. The support is also exceptional - I had a problem after downloading a software update which Alwin responded to promptly and efficiently. He told me the day and time the problem would be solved and it was. I’ve always recommended this app to friends and I’ll continue to do so. — Dr-PH on CLZ Books

Keep track of your books!
I have used this app for several years after many other trials that did not work well and I must say I have had the best customer service any time I have a suggestion or find an issue. As a book collector I depend on it to show me my existing collection as well as any library books I may read, when I am out at the bookstore. The new ability to separate into collections is great! I have books in boxes and now I don’t have to view them when looking at my collection list. Keep up the good work! — BookMage on CLZ Books

Fun!
A great and fun way to catalog one's library. I have over 2,000 books and this app will help organize it. — Joe Blavatsky on CLZ Books

CLZ book collector
This is the library app I wish I had discovered years ago ! Once you have mastered the knack of recording your books it is outstanding in its attention to detail. I asked a question of the developer and within hours I received two helpful responses. I particularly value the genre section where you can add your own titled files. The tag section is also valuable for books which are a collection of themes under one heading. Like any good filing system the real test is how easy is it to retrieve what has been stored and this app passes with flying colours. — 19Bookworm on CLZ Books

Love this app
This is the best app to document your library whether it is digital or actual books. I love this app and totally recommend it. It is worth the cost. — Stephanie B on CLZ Books
