DV Book Manager is a very feature rich program, that is highly suitable for it's intended job. It's approximately 50 fields cover all important information and they are rename-able if you feel that some important information is missed. You can even attach relevant pictures, web links, programs or other files. Auto complete and data base importing is also supported, with an inbuilt search function. Also included is a loan-out function to keep track of who has what. Data is saved in Access 97 format allowing easy exporting of data.

I do feel that the interface looks a bit dated, but DV Book Manager is definitely worth a look if you have too many books, especially as it has a quite reasonable 100 book limit in the unregistered version.
