Using the Driver
With the driver configured, except for the shelves, the use is no different to the existing driver. With the device connected, the device list will show the shelves the books are currently on.
If a shelf column is specified, the contents of this column will be used as shelves on the Touch. If a tag type column is used, one or more shelf names can be entered in the column for each book. The names should be separated by a comma. When calibre sends a book to the Touch that has shelves set in the column, the book will be added to the shelf.
You can use the Tags column as the bookshelf column. But, if you do, you probably don't want to automatically create shelves. One of my libraries has 145 tags. I don't find creating all 145 shelves to be very useful.
The series column is another that might be useful for shelves. If you have series with a lot of books, it might be useful. If you have only one or two books from a series on the Touch at a time, it might not be as useful.
