Manage libraries of books.

Overview

theLibrarian is an application for cataloguing, organizing and managing one or more libraries of books. A library is a collection of resources (books) that can have one ore more formats associated to them; in turn, each format can have a location that represents a file on disk or a web url or something else. As mentioned above, the application allows you to create and manage as many libraries as you like and move books from one to another.

Features
  • Store many useful informations about your books, including covers, reviews, annotations, keywords. The application will do its best to prevent manually typing in as much informations about books as possible by trying to extract them from the associated file(s) (if any) or querying several online databases such as iTunes Store, Google Books, Amazon Store, OpenLibrary, Wikipedia, Springer, etc.
  • Handle versions of the same books written in multiple languages
  • Easily group books in one or more collections
  • Store detailed informations about the created collections
  • Record authors' biographies and photos as well as publishers' descriptions and logos.
  • Quickly find books within the library by performing either generic or complexed searches or by using one of the automatic filter provided; you can distinguish books by type of format, date of insertion, status, genre, author, publisher
  • Move books files from/to the cloud thanks to the built-in support for Dropbox and Google Drive
  • Read books: supported formats are cbr, cbz, azw3, mobi, epub, djvu, pdf (Mac Only), rtf, rtfd, odt, chm, htmlz, html book folder
  • Convert between books formats; at time, it is possible to convert from epub to azw3 and viceversa and from mobi to epub and, for Mac only, between odt, rtf, rtfd and html.

What's new in theLibrarian

Version 1.4.0d:
  • Fixed a bug causing the display of last viewed books instead of an empty shelf when a filter gave 0 results
  • Improved conversion process from MOBI to EPUB
  • Now search of metadata and covers of book is performed by a separate process improving overall stability
  • Improved sharing of metadata and books by mail; added support for sending email by GMail, GMX, Hotmail, Yahoo accounts (Gmail and Yahoo require disabling protection against insecure apps in their configuration centres).
  • Provided partial support for fb2 (fbz the zipped version) book format
  • Added a working bar to the library window placed at the bottom of the shelfs dedicated part of the window. It is used to display the progress wheel and messages associated to time consumption tasks (removed the progress floating view and unified behaviour in mac, windows and ‘nix)
  • Now, when saving metadata retrieved from web, rating or mean ratings in case of merging of metadata, if available, will be saved as well
  • Now, it is possible to store both identifiers and mean ratings from a web search at once
  • Added export of collections of books with a few renaming options for exported book files
  • Fixed an issue on MacOS 10.14 and later preventing the loading of "unsecure" web pages due to the new protection policies by Apple
  • Added handling of authors’ pseudonyms in the biography section. The new way allows to avoid information redundancy by "linking" pseudonyms to real names.
