Consider running the content server on a PC that is always available. The other users can then use a standard browser to get books without risking harm. The PC owner gets to do the work of adding the new books
Ducky, my sweet:

Can you tell me--I want to be able to give my assistant, who runs a VM on a linux box, and has Calibre, a copy of our library, so she can update our author clients, etc., on our website. We keep our list of produced books in a Calibre catalog, which currently "lives" on my machine. Should I just copy it over...I don't want to simply give her a catalog; I need her to have my library, which I duplicate by using the "Save to Disk in a Single Directory," which gives me individually-named covers, all nicely-sized, that we then FTP to our webserver. That "Save to Disk in a Single Directory" library is on my dropbox. Can she use that Dropbox folder as her library, for ease of access?

Sorry--I did try all the FAQ's and Library and Catalog threads first, but didn't find what I was seeking. I need her to be able to see the meta, see the cover file names (so she can copy the complete filename.jpg from the properties), etc.

Do you think that will work? She links her Calibre to that dopbox dir? AS a library? I just don't use Calibre enough, for anything other than cataloging, to know how/if to make this work with the least amount of sturm-und-drang. ;-)

Thx,
Hitch
