Book Tracker Collector's Edition is a freeware program designed to be used by anyone needing to organize their books including avid readers, book collectors, law librarians, small school librarians, corporation librarians and more.
The program is designed to be both easy to use and flexible. The main screen has many of the functions you will use in organizing your book collection. To the left is a list of the books in the library, these can be sorted by author or title. Tabs at the top of this list allow you to look at lists of books by genre such as western, science fiction, non-fiction, romance, etc. A graphic, such as the book's cover, can be included and will be shown just below the book list when the book/author is highlighted or selected. To the right is where data can be entered or edited. All the key information fields on the book selected are displayed. The total number of books is also shown.
Most of the features that are included can be customized to your book collection or library. Each field can be renamed to something more specific for your books. Such as tracking a rating or grade level for each book instead of ID# or some other default book field we named. There are also many report options included for printing out and these can be customized as well.
Book Tracker allows any number of files for different collections or libraries. Book lists and data can be exported to .csv files for use in other programs. Also, larger text fields are included where notes specific to the author or book can be tracked. A search feature is also included which can be useful for those large book collections.
All in all, Book Tracker Collector's Edition is a very feature rich software program that is now offered for free. We hope you enjoy. Be sure to check back often to see if we've made new updates.
