Organizing Media

I’ve written at least once before about software I could use for organizing my collection of books and DVDs. At that time I thought the Home Library project looked interesting but a little immature, since that time I’ve located a more mature project with similar aims. The Open Media Lending Database (OpenDb) project seems to be just what I’m looking for. It’s clear some real thought has gone into the layout and design of the program. You can add new media type definitions through plugins, export a standardized XML listing of your holdings so you’re not locked in, loan media to others and create a library with several friends. I’ll be sure to take this for a spin in the near future and maybe even start posting some of my own media collection.
