I am looking for a software solution to help organize a small personal library.
My wife and I have just moved, so our books are still in boxes. I'd like to seize the opportunity and catalog and organize our personal library - give some books away, catalog everything I have and hopefully shelve them neatly with help of a mobile or PC app of some sort. It's not a large library - I think it's around 300-400 books at most.
Ideally, the solution I am looking for would work more or less this:
1) I take a book out of a box and either scan the barcode with my Android/iPhone device or type the ISBN.
2) The phone queries a database, finds my book, I confirm it and the book is saved on an online database (like LibraryThing for example). The online database part is important - I'd like to be able to look at this database from different computers, my phone, etc.
3) I set the book aside and move to the next one.
Rinse, repeat until all books are in the system. At that point I would move to the PC and be able to browse the database to sort and filter them by author, title, subject or whatever, and I would then use that sorted list to shelve the books neatly organized.
Is there a solution (or a combination of solutions) that does this? I've seen this past question
that makes no mention of a phone app, and since it's almost four years old, I thought I'd ask for other newer alternatives that may have appeared in the meantime.
