I agree with your complaint, but the easier way to do an inventory is
to put a laptop on a bookcart and attach a barcode scanner.  Then scan
every book you see into a text file and import it into the inventory
tool - that way you don't need the shelf list until you're done with
the inventory to review what's still missing.
