During the next year or two, I will retire and consolidate two homes into one. This means, inter alia, selling a lot of books and some CDs and LPs. It occurred to me that I could probably scan the bar codes on books, CDs, and newer LPs with a device and get the info on line rather than type in a lot of stuff manually in preparation for selling. It would also be good to have a (relatively) complete record of what I own for insurance purposes.
I’ve googled and found that there is software that works with the cameras in phones/tablets to read barcodes and then look up information. Has anyone ever used any of these products? Collectorz.com has some that looks good but I’d appreciate hearing from anyone who has done this and can recommend product(s). Thanks!
