After you’ve created your account and logged in you’ll be greeted with a popup reminding you to add a library. Click “OK” to accept the message so you can begin.
Start by clicking the “III\+” icon in the bottom right corner of the Libraries tab.
The Add Library form will appear.
- Type a title
- Select a type (Books, movies, music, or video games). It’s important to note that libraries can only contain a single type of item. Don’t worry though, you can create up to 100 different libraries.
- Optionally publish your library. Publishing your library will make it public. Unchecking will keep your library private. Publishing your library is currently the only way to share your library with others.
Now that you’ve created your first library you’re ready to begin adding items. This is where our fast and accurate scanner comes into good use. Select your newly listed library from the list on the libraries tab and another dialog will appear with instructions. Tap “OK” to accept and begin adding items.
Click the “+” icon in the bottom right corner right above the tab bar. This will turn it into an “x” (which will close the dialog when tapped, if you choose to cancel). The dialog will give you two options: “Barcode” and “Manual Entry.”
Selecting “Barcode” will bring up the camera scanner which allows you to scan ISBN or UPC barcodes.
Manual Entry should be reserved for rare/antique items without an ISBN or UPC. This feature allows you to manually enter data for each field.
