When I download metadata for books many of my books end up with a tag Young Adult or Childrens. You can use these tags to create a virtual library and start the content server showing just these books.

Currently I have about 1000 books tagged as Young Adult and 500 tagged as Children and I have a virtual library setup for each.

Tags like these are crowd sourced there is no guiding authority that I know of rating books. So in the end there is no substitute for you verifying the book and manually adding or removing tags as you see fit.

yup I get all of that. but lots of stuff i have doesn't have those tags. so i was looking for a source.

i thought common sense media might be a good metadata source

could you send me your titles and tags so i could bounce my library against it

My mistake. I didn't understand your initial request.

I now understand that you are hoping someone can use Common Sense Media as metadata source plugin.

I can't help with that. But all of the tags I have in my library I acquired using the Goodreads metadata source plugin.
