"Suitable For Small Libraries"

September 05, 2011  |  By pacmansion

 |  Version: BookDB 2.2.40

Pros

Useful library feature for look-up computers is being able to present the library in view mode only, so no editing by users can be done. Comprehensive data information can be entered on main library computer which can check out and edit listings.

Cons

It's a little difficult to set up the view mode feature and it may be a little inconvenient to update the information on the patron catalogue computers, but not impossible.

Summary

Fantastic.I highly recommend this program. For a small library not yet hooked up to the internet, BookDB 2 is easy to use and has the security features needed. While I've looked all over the internet for other free alternatives, I've found nothing that comes close in terms of ease of use and features. The program even allows the user to print out bar code labels for books. As mentioned above, the program installed on the main librarian computer can be used for entering and modifying book data, entering borrower information, and checking books in and out. The View only mode can be set up on catalogue computers, on which data cannot be modified.

March 10, 2011  |  By lc3722

 |  Version: BookDB 2.2.40

Pros

My personal book collection is over 3,500 and I have them all listed in Book DB so I will not duplicate purchases.

Cons

nothing negative that I can think of.

Summary

This is my first online review of anything but I feel so strongly about Book DB which is a free download, easy to use, and fills all my requirements to keep an up to day record of my book collection.

"Nice basic book catalog with several useful features"

October 31, 2010  |  By thulemanden

 |  Version: BookDB 2.2.37

Pros

Installs on MS Windows 7. Several interface languages. Import and export like from LibraryThing.com. Truely free. Takes care of loans too.

Cons

Does not perform an isbn validty check. No option for translator role, limited to author and editor.

Summary

A book catalog is a complicated piece of software, if it should solve all variations. This software makes a bold effort, but seems to be stopped in its development which is sad. Maybe the author would want to open source it or continue modernization.

"A good database for your books, for free"

May 15, 2009  |  By howardferns

 |  Version: BookDB 2.2.18

Pros

You can create a list of all your books sorted alphabetically by author, title, year, publisher etc. Enter as much or as little as you like. Double click on any one for full details in a seperate window, & more by clicking on Description/Categories.

Cons

Some minor shortcomings, for example you can only access the full details of each title from Books - clicking on Authors, Publishers or Categories only gives a lst of the relevant titles, you can't then see further details from these.

Summary

Could be a lttle bit more versatile, but it's the best free one at the moment.
