book organization woes on Kobo Aura

I just got my mother a Kobo Aura, thinking it might be a decent upgrade from her old Sony PRS-350. The Sony is not working well any more, though it might just need a new battery. Anyhow, what I (and she) liked about the Sony is that when copying books over from Calibre, it brought information along with. It automatically created collections for different genres and for different series. It's not looking like the Aura does this. I'm hoping though that I've just missed something and there's a way to sort/organize books on the Kobo Aura reader without having to manually put them into collections on the reader itself. If that's the case, I'm going to have to try and resurrect the old Sony. *fingers crossed for good tips*

Check the MobileRead wiki entry at Kobo Shelves and Collections for some help on using collections (Kobo used to call them shelves hence the name of the wiki entry).

One item to note is that in most cases, you need to copy the books to the Kobo, safely eject and let it import the books, reconnect and send the information. The first pass adds the books to the database, the second pass adds information to the database entries.
