The Catalog Project Begins

I'm sure we're going at it the wrong way, but we've started cataloging our books. Until I can get a suitable database up and running, we're just entering information into (ugh) a spreadsheet. We did a symbolically small number of books (181) and are making progress at keeping things neat.

Note that "organized" is not part of the equation. IT'S A START, GOSH DARN IT!

  • Yep, poked at that in a recent post.

  • (Dan) There's a program called "Delicious Library" that allows you to use an iSight camera as a bar-code reader. It then looks up the ISBN on Amazon and you don't have to enter anything.

    I used it for our 900+ title DVD collection and it works on about 80 to 90% of the titles.
