Change path to Calibre library

I already have a "live" library established with Calibre, but I now want to use Calibre to create a new (temporary) library, but keep the existing live one so that I can return to it once I've created the new one and tidied up the entries. Then I would import the books from the temporary library into the the main live one.

I'd thought that I could just modify the path info to point to a new location, import books to it, then when finished the tidying of the temporary library just restore the path back to point to my "live" library.

Where does Calibre keep the path info for it's library? I can't see it in the preferences tabs, or find an ini file.
