    Has anyone tried the Scott eCatalogs here..... http://www.scottonline.com/ ? According to the Quick Start Guide here.... http://www.scottonline.com/scott-quickstart , you can make digital notes, bookmark pages, etc.

    Living in a really small apartment like I do, this would be a better option for me. I don't have a desk or anything similar to use. I do a lot of my reading on the kitchen counter.

    I haven't yet looked at them... I received a similar link (may be the same) from Linn's in an email a couple of weeks ago but haven't investigated to date. As I said in one of my previous posts: my launching of the factory in Mexico is now in full swing and I don't have a lot of down-time.

    But that is Number 1 on my list for a scheduled down-time in a couple of weeks so will keep you posted...

    No, I haven't been tempted to try that, it may be a good option for some. I have been quite fastidious in entering all my philatelic purchases on my laptop, backing up the files on external hard drives. I am quite close to the public library which always has a new Scott catalog on the shelve. Every couple of years I do the laborious chore of updating my spreadsheets with new values.

    I wish I would have been as fastidious... now I am paying for it.

    I used to be close to a library with the Scott's, but most of the ones around me now don't carry it. So I will look at these and see... most of my stamp catalogues and advertisements are digital now though...

    And ditto on the pain of updating prices... I do the same with both Scott's and the Black Book...

    When I started up collecting again I was very lackadaisical about keeping records. As I got older I realized that keeping track of cost basis, inventory and value was absolutely necessary for insurance, inheritance and other reasons. That's really the only reason I go through the ritual. Thank goodness I kept the invoices and receipts I had accumulated. In your case the eCatalog may a good choice. It may also be a good choice for others not near a library that carries a current set of Scott's.

    I kept sales receipts and invoices as well so I just have to go through the pain of indexing. On those that were given or traded, I still catalogue them and pull a price from one of the references... but mostly just pull up a few of the most recent auctions and see what the market says.
