Calibre Server Management

Hello!

I'm currently working to make a set of books from Gutenberg available to my students through Calibre Server. Everything is set up and they can access the library through a web browser, (only IE9 is available unfortunately). My issue is I need students to be able to either:

A: read epub and mobi files directly through an IE explorer plugin, (not the preferred solution)

B: be able to read with the calibre app, (or another viable one) on their desktops/iPads without having the ability to do anything except download new books from the server and read them.

I hope someone can help with suggestions here!

Thanks,

django

One solution does not fit all

There are applications (some free) for ipad
I use a (EPUB) Plugin for my desktop browser, but it is for Firefox

Do the students (or staff) have permission to install plugins or software?
