Application for Indexing e-books for a web site?
I have a large library of public domain e-books I'd like to make available online via a website. Does anyone know of any software or application that could index the library and create links without having to do it manually?

Does your web server offer PHP support? If so, this would be a simple job for PHP scripting. Add all your book names into a database, and write a PHP script to (for example) generate an HTML page containing the names of and links to, all books with authors whose names start in "A" when the "A" link is clicked.

I haven't actually done this, but I believe you can do what you want by using a combination of calibre and calibre2opds.
First create a calibre database with all your public domain titles, then use calibre2opds to generate the HTML for the website, based on the calibre database.
You can read more about calibre2opds here: http://wiki.mobileread.com/wiki/Calibre2opds and here: http://calibre2opds.com/
And just in case you're unfamiliar with calibre, you can get it here: http://calibre-ebook.com/
