  1. I’ve been trying to find instructions on how to set up multiple libraries in calibre since it isn’t obvious to me from playing with the UI. Pointers appreciated.

    Related to that is my question as to whether the content server can be used to serve multiple libraries to different audiences (using passwords and subdirectories I suppose).

    Of course this is a departure from the usual application of calibre, a personal library manager. As an academic, I’d be very interested in being able to create ePub documents of various lengths (not necessarily all full length books) and share them with different groups of students.

    Is there a better tool than calibre for that?

  2. Frank: click the triangle just to the right of the “stack of books” library icon (and just to the left of the heart). You’ll get a “Choose your calibre library” dialog. There you can create a new library, switch to a different existing library, or move an existing library to a new path.
