What I did was to add the books from the internal storage to my Calibre library, delete the books from the internal memory and then restore them to the external card. After all this was completed, I compacted the database. DavidFor's Kobo Utilities plugin for Calibre among it's many other functions, will verify, compact and backup the ereader's database.

I'd like to have the whole library on the card so that I can just swap the card into another device if I upgrade my hardware, and so that the library will survive a factory reset. I can't find anything in the Kobo documentation about this.
As far as I know, the only time .kepubs purchased from Kobo will be stored on the uSD card is when you run out of space on the internal card. However, any .kepubs from Kobo would be automatically resynchronized after a factory reset. If you add a new device with the same Kobo account, your books will be synchronized to that device as well.
