well, if all things go well, i'll be moving in around 8 weeks. and our
home library will have a garage all to itself.
the first task is to set the library up, organised etc. the second is to
i'm looking for a shareware/freeware/open source system that can do the
import and export records in text or other formats
perhaps use a system like the endnote connection files (z39.50) to pull
use barcode scanners to scan ISBN numbers and barcodes on CDs/LPs
handle approx. 20000 records of books, magazines, records and CDs
if i can't find anything i might just do all the searching in endnote,
and then create maybe an access (yuck i know) database or find an old
version of filemaker.
do any large music catalogues (CDDB style) have Z39.50 access?
any and all advice welcome.
