I've searched some for this on LT, but maybe I'm just not using the right keywords. Basically, I want to use my cuecat to generate a list of books that I can then power edit the tags on. See, I'm moving, and I want to label my books with the box I'm packing them in, so that I know how to find any particular one during the time when we're unpacking. For new books, no problems, but I already have most of them in my library, so there's no way that I see to do it. It is an option if you're importing books from other cataloging sites, so I think it should be possible. Anyone know how to do this?

I'm not sure what you want to do. If the books are already in your library, you can search for them (anything they have in common? a tag already? or most of them have in common).

I _believe_ (and I haven't tried this, so can't say for sure) that if you do a re-import of your books that LT will notice duplicates and will only modify things that have changed - like tags. That is, get the .csv file - maybe export your library? - fill in the ISBN (with your CueCat...though I'm not sure a clawed CueCat will translate correctly), put in the new tag(s) you want, and import again. You might try it with one or two books and see if it works first. The Help still says Universal Import only catches ISBNs, but it does get tags as well...I'm just not sure of the details.

Import page, with a sample .csv file for the new universal import.

Hope this helps!
