Editors' Review

BookCAT provides all the tools necessary to track books for a professional or a home library. Its interesting options give you full control of your catalog and lending.

Although it performed a complicated task, the program's interface is surprisingly accessible. It has plenty to offer seasoned and novice librarians as well as beginning to advanced book collectors. The layout is professional and intuitive with its bright, well-labeled commands. We were instantly pleased with this program, since we were able to quickly populate our entire library by entering only each book's ISBN number. BookCAT instantly downloaded each volume's details, including author, price, and even a cover photo. While we would have liked BookCAT to fill in other information, such as summaries, this tool removed a lot of manual input, which counted for a lot. We were able to view our entire library and get a solid look at every item we owned. We were also able to run dozens of different reports to sort the books. While its cataloging tools were simple and helpful, its lending features took the program to a new level. And with a few simple commands, we were able to loan out books, set an overdue reminder, and even send an e-mail to borrowers about their due dates. With its usability and features, we had no trouble picturing this software at work in an actual library.

BookCAT has a 30-day, 40-book-per-database trial limitation. While more automatic features would be nice, its cataloging and lending tools earn our recommendation.

"Does everything I expected it to, and MORE !"

December 15, 2009  |  By sbgraves888

 |  Version: BookCAT 9.12.01

Pros

Well thought out design. Very intuitive - easy to use. Extremely easy to customize for visual and printed reports, searches and displays. Unlimited room to write your own "book report" in the Notes & Comments section. No bugs or glitches.

Cons

Takes quite a while to load, but I think that is mainly my fault for having so many programs running in the background.

Summary

Most heavy readers have a million notes lying around reminding them about books that they have seen reviewed or been told about. BookCAT 9 has a special section for "Books you want to Own" which keeps a very well organized detailed listing of all those things that you used keep on scraps of paper. Love it !

"I love the program, but It's NOT free!"

August 10, 2009  |  By marshellrussell

 |  Version: BookCAT 9.12.01

Pros

This program has it all! Very easy to use, and very complete package.

Cons

It is in the free category; not the free to evaluate copy. You must pay for this after 30 days. I did not see this when i downloaded it, I was in a hurry. Please read ALL of the description...you can only use it for 40 books for evaluation purposes.

Summary

The features are a book lovers dream come true. Weather you are a seller, or just need to get a handle on your collection, this is for you. This program is only for evaluation! The "real" product costs forty dollars...not a bad price if I could afford it.

My biggest gripe is it is in the wrong category, which is very misleading.
