My preference is one master providing a content server and web/opds access from the others. That prohibits making updates and changing metadata from anywhere other than the master. If you must have multiple access for metadata changes from all of them, consider DropBox (search here), but you will have problems occasionally if you are not careful to avoid simultaneous access.

i use synchronization shareware software, both for calibre & for other stuff. e.g. to backup game saves, music collections...

there's freeware stuff out there also if you don't need bells & whistles. set up so that entire calibre library folder is synched & you are good to go.

i use synchromagic. there's also goodsynch, allsynch.....
