Music Label serves this purpose as it is a tool designed to organize music library and its database with just a few clicks. It can scan various types of media including hard drives, audio CDs, vinyls, and digital files (MP3 and WMA) to find music files and catalog these files to your music collection. There is no need to manually edit information of your tracks as all this information is downloaded from its online databases. Its built-in loan manager even lets you keep track of CDs available on loan.

For each of this tab, separate set of features and icons are shown in the toolbar.
