What it is: A tool for keeping track of your book collection and who you've loaned copies of your books to.
What it isn't: A full-blown system for keeping track of the collection of a public library.
I wrote this to keep track of my personal library at home. It would take some modifying for it to be ready for use with a really HUGE collection in a public environment.
Why I wrote it: Other tools didn't really seem to offer me the functionality my wife and I wanted for keeping track of our books. We wanted something nice and simple that could do certain things, and we didn't want a lot of fluff. So it's fairly minimalist. The features we need, and none of the ones we don't.
If you want a feature that's not there, feel free to email me about it via the discussion group.Features (Current and Planned)
- Adding new books to the database
- Searching for books by keywords
- Updating/deleting existing books in the database
- Authentication and user management (disabled by default)
- Adding/updating/deleting information on who has been loaned a book
- Pull author/title by ISBN

The lxml and python-amazon-product-api packages must be installed in Python to use the Amazon lookup features. Links to download them will be added to the project site.
