Lady of the Lake

Collection Organization

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have a recommendation for a database organizer for music, books, etc. I started to put my own together in access, and then realized there probably was some excellent system already out there. Help! I'm drowning in disorganization (and the lake too)

Welcome to my world IPB Image IPB Image

I let a month or so go by where I didn't document the new shows, and it's been downhill ever since IPB Image

YOU SHOULD NEVER LET THE A MONTH SLIP AWAY!

THESE DOWNHILL SITUATIONS MENTIONED HERE ARE VERY UNFORTUNATE AND NEXT TO IMPOSSIBLE TO RECOVER FROM.


I update my list on a daily basis (or on those days when it seems my door bell is constantly ringing with either special deliveries or the UPS delivery) sometimes twice daily!!!

I hope this helps Lake Lady -- and good luck - remember ORGANIZATION IS VERY IMPORTANT . . . and stick around hopefully someone else can help out here.

Or better yet, maybe in the next few days we can get an entire section devoted just to ORGANIZATIONAL SKILLS.

Thanks

How many months?

You could send them to me and I could organize, color-code and develop a very nice system for you.

Hey Captain Tex: Do you have CatTraxx? I saw that and thought it would be a good program. I'm looking for a verifiable, sound organizational system.

Richie--you didn't leave a number so how can I call? IPB Image
