Question Adding a library with .opf files

Hi,
I have downloaded a library which seems to be a calibre one.
There are subdirectoies and .OPF files inside of them.
How could I add this library and let calibre import data from .opf files ?

Thanks in advance

The same way you would do any other bulk Add books. Use the drop down arrow to the right of the add books icon and select Add books from directories, including sub-directories (one book per directory...).

I would first make it a working separate library.
(Switch/create Library to get to this one)
If Metadata.db was NOT included: Use the Rebuild option of Library maintenance .

Now you have options
you can select titles and right-click Copy To Library (your main)

Good idea. I used to do exactly that.

Now, I just have it add the tag working when adding any books and I start my library up with a restriction that only shows my Finished books. When I want to smooth out the unfinished (working) books I simply switch the restricted to dropdown to "working". This causes me to see only books that need to be "worked" before being switched to the Finished view.
