The catalogs have been created using ReaderWare (RW) to store each entry's data.

Although some entries have been manually entered, most entries are "automatically" processed by:

  1. scanning the entry's ISBN barcode/number or Library of Congress Number with a bar code reader;
  2. RW then automatically retrieves all the data available from online sources, e.g., Amazon, Barnes & Noble, etc., including comments about the entry and stores it into the RW databases;
  3. the RW data is then exported as a CSV file
  4. the CSV file is then processed and displayed by the catalog.php process.
