Editors' Review

Book DB presents bookworms and small lending libraries with a way to keep track of books. Though the program was easy to use, we found its interface lacking any kind of flexibility for customization.

The program's interface is very bare bones in appearance and left much to be desired. From there, you can print a copy of the database and export it as an HTML or TXT file, which is handy. We entered a few titles into the program and discovered that you do not have to fill out every blank in the entry form, but you must enter information into the Publication Details section to save the entry. The entry form isn't very flexible for customization, and as a potential home user, we wished we had the option of making a list simply of title and author. Each institution and individual's collection of books is different, and in order to accommodate a variety of collections, a database program like this needs to be more flexible.

Book DB has a Help file, and a user manual for the program is included in the Help menu. Unfortunately, this free program does not uninstall cleanly and leaves a folder in the Documents folder. Overall, we wished that the program's interface were more enjoyable to use, and offered more flexibility. For that reason, we recommend that you look for a more versatile program for keeping track of your collections.
