Creating a free CD / DVD database and Labels in OpenOffice.org
If you're serious about music or DVDs, at some point you cross the
threshold of having more than you can keep track of easily. The box
full of index cards has served its purpose; it's time to move on to
storing information about your CDs and DVDs in a database.
This might seem like more of a pain than you can stand. What's the
point of doing a database when you can just type it all into a
spreadsheet, for instance? Well, a spreadsheet is a good start but with
a database you get a lot more features, including easily printing
custom labels for all those legal backups you’ve made. You could also
print out a record of all your movies or music, if you keep notes on
them such as summaries, who you’ve loaned them to, and anything else
Putting together a database and creating the forms to print what
you want takes more than a couple steps, but it's not that difficult.
Even better, it's free, since you can use the free open source office suite OpenOffice.org to do everything.
