Libra is a defunct media cataloguing application for Microsoft Windows XP, Vista, and 7. It was developed by CodeJam. The software allowed users to manage their collections of books, VHS tapes, DVDs, audio cassettes, Compact Discs and video games via automatic information retrieval and collection from Amazon.com. The program was free for noncommercial use.

On April 3, 2009, Libra's website became a GoDaddy 404 Error page and all mention of the software had been removed from CodeJam's website. Version 0.9.2 of Libra can still be downloaded from download.com and other third party sites. Due to changes in Amazon's architecture, the program can no longer download information from the website, and instead users must add items manually.
