The best way is to use tags to clearly identify your books then use the the restricted library function.

As an example after adding the Tabletop tags simply clicking in the Tag browser on the tag "Tabletop" so it shows a plus. This will show you only Tabletop books. Save this search (right side of calibre search bar) as Tabletop and you can simply click the Restrict to dropdown (left side of calibre search bar) and choose your Tabletop saved search to restrict you library view and activities to just Tabletop books. Once it is restricted all plugins and searches will treat this restriction as its own library.

Do the same for whatever other major items you would like to work with and search as a separate entity. This is a way of creating virtual separate libraries without the need to actually separate your books into separate libraries.

I have any new books added automatically tagged with a "working" tag. I have restrictions set for many things. I can select working library, finished library, adult fiction library etc...

Post 8 and 9 in this thread might clear up some of what I'm saying.

In the attachments below you can see how I restricted the library to my Finished Library and also to Classics.
