Is there a way to create "links" inside Calibre?

Is there a way to create "links" inside Calibre?

When I open the edit metadata screen, I guess I can input links to websites but I wonder: Can I input links to other books on Calibre?

No

The Calibre GUI is not a web server.
It might work if you use the content server Interface, but no bets.

Not within the context of Calibre - e.g. a link from Book A to Book B - that when clicked would make Book B the 'current book' in Calibre.

You can put file system URIs into comments - which is useful if you have 'supplementary material" - eg email threads with the author, a spreadsheet, a computer game, a video, audio etc.

I think Kovid wrote somewhere that he does NOT want Calibre to become a citations tracking system - here it is - post 17 http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=189119

What did we do before tabbed browsers and search...
