This is a well-designed, well-thought and flexible extension that works with Joomla! 3.9.0.
Ease of use
Relatively easy to use yet full of suble implementations and options for those who want to unleash its potential
The support is simply as remarkable today as it was a year ago. Fast, efficient and very generous of time and expertise.
The documentation is appropriate AND necessary: it should be read to understand the installation and use.
I used this to: Online database of out-of-copyright works where description of works and authors' publications matter.
Функциональность выше всяких похвал: есть всё что нужно, а то, что не нужно, легко отключается
Ease of use
Управление книгами, категориями, авторами, да и самим модулем очень простое, разобраться сможет любой.
Техподдержка это вообще чудо - откликаются быстро, исправляют баги и консультируют по модулю в кратчайшие сроки.
Документации по модулю вагон и маленькая тележка, а если чё-то непонятно, то есть форум, головне - английську мову розумити

Just what I needed

Posted on 27 September 2017
The free version has all the functionality I needed to make our 7000 volume church library available on our website.
Ease of use
Quite easy to use on both the front end and back end. I trained our volunteer librarians in about 30 minutes.
The support is excellent, even for the free version. I've contacted the developer a couple of times and got responses in a few hours.
The documentation has improved considerably with version 4. The documentation on expiring and importing and upgrading versions has improved.
I used this to: Maintaining a modest church library.
Very practical for managing any library type catalog. Its feature that imports cover images and descriptions from Amazon is amazing.
Ease of use
Easy to install and configure.
Excellent but not much needed. They did help me with an error in my configuration.
The configuration prompts are so clear than it is not needed but is there for those who like to read such.
I used this to: We use BookLibrary to maintain a collection of a few thousand books and videos in our community homeowners library. The ability to search on anything and everything is very nice.
Works as expected, it shows my labrary as i want it.
Ease of use
The extension is easy to use, when you've set the first five books. Easy to create category.
Best support I had for a free module.
I used this to: A concert archive listed with 1600 concerts in 20 categories.
