Is it possible to export ebooks and show serie in the list?

I have a Kobo Glo e-reader and would like to know if it is possible to show the serie when listing the books int the library.
Books I get from the kobo store and belongs to a serie appears like this in the library:

Title of the book
serie name - x
author(s) name(s)

When I import and external book, it only show the "Title of the book" and "author(s) name(s)". "serie name - x" doesn't show. I have tried set the serie name and number on calibre and export through it, but didn't work. Is it possible? How?

Yes it is possible, but there is a trick: The series information doesn't get sent when you first send the book to the device. After the book has been processed and is in the device's library, you need to re-connect the device to Calibre again and the series information will be sent then. You also need to check that these two options are set in calibre:

Preferences > Sending books to device > Metadata management: Automatic

Preferences > Plugins > Device interface plugins > KoboTouch > Customise plugin > Set Series information: Tick


Edit: This is optional, most people will not want to bother, but ... Calibre has a limitation in that its series index can only be a number. It is possible to get around this by editing the device's database, setting the series information manually to anything you want, but in that case you would want to untick the KoboTouch driver's Set series information option to prevent it overwriting the manually set information. In the screenshot below I set the series index for the last book to 3,4 with the sqlite3 command:
Code:
UPDATE content SET Series='Kencyrath', SeriesNumber='3,4' WHERE BookID IS NULL AND IsDownloaded=='true' AND Title=="Seeker's Bane";

I tried Geoff's suggestion, and indeed, in my Red Mars bookshelf, the number of the series shows below the title, and above the author's name.

Thanks GeoffR. Appreciate it.

The other idea is to use a metadata plugboard to massage the title to include series info; this way it's easy to sort and see the books in series order.

See examples in this post Quick Guide to Shelf Management with calibre 0.9.1 & above (Touch / Glo / Mini /Aura)
