Software for book register on PC.

For the last 16 years I've made a register of my books in a word document. First it was without problems, I have a rather good memory, but now I'm close to 600 titles (books, booklets, articles etc) and I must admit, I can't remember them all any longer.
Is there some kind of register, like the ones they use in libraries, where you can search for author, title, publ. year etc, which you can download or buy?

Ole - I will make some enquiries and get back to you. I am sure there is something. Libraries, of course, usually use the Dewy system to categorise books, but that is not the same as a searchable index.

Would something like Microsoft Access do?

Sadly I haven't used it much myself, and not in the last 10 or 15 years, so I can't offer much input.
I've looked for something similar to organize my ever growing list of sampled beers. As I dread the huge data input from a huge stack of hand written notes I still haven't decided on a platform for the task, but MS Access would probaby suit my (and your) needs very well

Ole - The books in the Archery Library at The Manchester Museum have been put on a free database by the Archery Librarian and if you would please send your email address to me at wendy.hodkinson@manchester.ac.uk I will ask him to email you with details of the library database. Wendy
