Collectorz.com Book Collector

CNET Editors' review

Book Collector allows people to catalog their book collections and seek out specific titles using a variety of methods. While this program's appeal is limited, those who need such software will be impressed.

This program starts users off with a sample book collection, allowing them to experiment and get a feel before inputting their own books. The interface is plain but easy to follow. Building your collection is as simple as entering the ISBN number. From there a picture of the book cover appears along with a brief description and other publishing details. If your book was published before ISBNs were issued, there is an option to enter all the data manually.

Once a catalog is created, Book Collector functions much like the software at libraries or book stores. There are filters to sort entries, as well as a keyword search that scans the brief descriptions. In addition, there is a wealth of information you can input about the book, such as date purchased, purchase price, and more. Book Collector even offers people a way to track books that have been loaned out.

Anyone with more books than they know what to do with, or someone looking to organize their collection for selling or loaning, will find Book Collector indispensable. The trial is limited to 100 book entries. From its ease of adding book information to its customizable searches, this download is a book lover's dream.

    "NOT FOR LENDING LIBRARIES- DO NOT BUY if U R a Library!"

    April 3, 2014  |   By sam0234

    Version: Collectorz.com Book Collector 9.1.1

    Pros

    Seems fine for personal collections.

    Scanner/ISBN features are nice.

    Good access to ISBN data for easy uploads (so long as the books are from after 1970 when ISBNs were created- they do have some data for some books that may be before 1970 and if not you can enter it- more work but is possible).

    Free updates and fairly good customer support.

    Cons

    NOT FOR LENDING!!

    No capacity to get books back from borrowers as there is
    NO EMAIL NOTIFICATIONS capacity for overdue books! You can only track who you are giving your books away for free.

    The Loan Manager is very buggy,and difficult to use.
    They have informed us that they are not planning on doing any upgrades on this part- only on making the "shelves" look pretty (as of 2014).

    While it almost has the capacity- and is falsely advertized as such- this is NOT for any professional organization or small businesses. Groups such as churches, community groups, small schools, non-profit organizations, etc. should AVOID THIS PRODUCT.

    (Too bad Collectorz chooses to loose out on this very large and potentially profitable client group, simply because they don't want to upgrade this one feature that everyone could benefit from. There are other programs that can do this and Collectorz almost have all the pieces in place for this- they just won't make this a really useful system.)

    Summary

    NO LENDING CAPACITIES- (WARNING- False advertizing!!)

    While it almost has the capacity- and is falsely advertized as such- this is NOT for any professional organization or small businesses. Groups such as churches, community groups, small schools, non-profit organizations, etc. should AVOID THIS PRODUCT.

    This product is fine for personal collections, but until Collectorz changes their mind and updates this product to incorporate overdue email notification capacities- DO NOT BUY THIS SOFTWARE. If you are planning on lending out your items you are just GIVING AWAY YOUR ITEMS for free. It is nice that you can track where they are going, but you will never see your items again.

    AVOID THIS PRODUCT if you think you may share any of your collection to more than 5-10 people as you will have to track them down personally to get your books back.

    Otherwise- for a personal organizational tool- its fine.
