Merge two Independent Calibre Libraries

I'm a bit of a newbie here. We have a large collection of books in various formats and have two or three different systems (geographically spread) dividing the load to bring parts of the collection into our local Calibre libraries and convert into EPUB & Mobi formats. We would like to update our local libraries with the Work done on the other remote libraries on a periodic basis but I am unsure on how to approach this -- We certainly do not wish to rework the metadata.

Use the Library Icon to Change (or Create) to another existing Library.
select books: Right-click (on a selected book) Copy to Library (one of the choice should be your original). I suggest doing this in small chunks: 20 -3 books at a time.
