Libraries have to provide access to the varying forms of information available. In addition to the conventional book lending, users should be given access to e-books. This artcle examines how to manage e-books in a library using calibre e-book management software. Calibre is a highly user friendly personal e-book manager. This free software can be used in libraries for developing e-book based content server, archiving news, converting e-book formats etc.
