DocuLib manages locally stored libraries of books, textbooks, or articles by keeping track of data such as authors, title, year, tags, and DOI/ISBN. Metadata can be searched through openlibrary.org and semanticscholar.org. DocuLib automatically detects renamed, moved, and duplicate files.

A simple GUI for managing document metadata for books, textbooks, or articles.
The underlying idea is to locally store certain types of files in different libraries. Inside a library the directory structure becomes irrelevant and DocuLib keeps track of metadata for you, such as author, title, tags, DOI, etc. You can then quickly find a certain file by using keywords in the metadata. The key features of DocuLib are the following:
Files can be moved or renamed within or between libraries without losing metadata, changes are detected automatically
Automatically detect and mark duplicate files
Obtain bibTex from crossref.org
Manage multiple libraries in different locations
Error permissive search
