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

      April 03, 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.
