What I Liked:
  • Ease of typing in book information, whether by ISBN number or title and author and then selecting my specific edition
  • Loan manager (just like a real library!)
  • All the available fields, such as genre, Dewey, Collection Status, personal information, etc.

What I Disliked:
  • Not all book covers available
  • LC Classification did not work for me
  • Owners manual only accessible online

B (boy, age six almost seven) and C (girl, age four almost five) thought it was exciting that we were going to be able to put a list of all our books on the computer. They were very surprised when they saw the number of books I inputted and what a small pile it was.

Other Products Available: (very useful if you have many books with bar-codes) CueCat Scanner, C37 Scanner, OPN-2001 Scanner, Music Collector, Movie Collector, Comic Collector, Game Collector, MP3 Collector, Photo Collector
