Catalogue update #8
I’m really making progress now with the catalogue, all my false starts have been mostly overcome and the Calibre library is growing.
I have found using Calibres main strength in maintaining a library to be a huge advantage of a directory listing of poorly named files. Once the book is imported, Calibre can also extract the stored metadata of the book and add it to the collection as well as being able to supplement it with on-line lookups.
When I started this journey I was only interested in using the ISBN as the primary way of identifying a book, now I have come to realise that embedded metadata is just as important to maintain an accurate collection.
I just wish game publishers would take this into account when creating their pdf files for distribution to the general public.
At the rate I’m going I may only have one or two updates left in this subject.
