Best way to archive?

By bridget ·
I'm new to this site and to the IT industry. I work for a small company of approximately 25 people and my role as administrative assistant has taken a turn towards IT/network support. I have had no training in this area, I just like to putz around with machines and make them work.

Anyway, I have a problem I'm hoping someone might have advice on. We have a hard-copy library of publications, catalogs, newsletters, etc that my boss insists on keeping forever. We have resorted to filing these alphabetically, but this method does no good if a person is simply looking for a supplier of a certain type of product. Here enters our IT problem. What is the best way to set up a database to keep inventory of our library, and what program is easiest to use for this? We have a high school girl working for us a couple days a week that I'd really like to pass the project off to, but I want to make sure she does it right and we can figure out what she did after she leaves.
Any suggestions?

Hi Bridget,

I would check the database wizards that are included with Microsoft Access 2003. I think that there is a book collection wizard in there that can help you keep track of this information. It's really easy to setup and use.
