If you don't unzip you book library to C:\Database Dreams\ the link managaer will be the first screen you see as below.
NOTE:if you don't use any of my other projects you will need to create a folder called "Database Dreams" if you wish to keep all my programs together this folder can be set as a trusted location please read: https://databasedreams.createaforum.com/info-center/setting-up-a-trusted-location/
Select your DD's Dream Books Folder then the file Book Library Data.accdb then click Re-Connect

Once the link manager completes the screen below will be displayed

You should first click the button "Preferences" which will display the screen below.

If you tick the option create folders for new authors this will add 3 folders to your "Authors A-Z Folders" plus the system will maintain the link within the program so if you change an authors name the linked folder will be updated.

Folders Location: This should be your "Authors A-Z Folders" Which you can move anywhere as long as this field points to that location so you could put it in your onedrive folder so it's backed up.

Security Setting: If you select "Default User" Everytime the book library opens it will go to your "My Books" screen selecting "Require Login" will display a login screen if you haven't updated the default user use the following Login Name: Admin and Password: Admin I will cover users next.

The default user will be set to Admin unless you have updated that record.

Clicking Family Members will display the user list.

You can edit the Admin entry  then click the "Password" Button which will diplay the password currently set so you can edit it DON'T FORGET YOUR PASSWORD I will charge for a reset file request
You can only use the delete button if there is more than 1 user or the users record is not in use within the system

From this point I will go though what you need to know in the sequence you will need to start using the book library so first will be adding an Author so click the button "Add/Search Authors" this will diplay the search screen which I will cover later.

at the bottom of the search screen you will see a button "Add Author" clicking it will display the screen below.

Give the Author a name then if you don't have the create folders set in preferences you could create a set of folders for the new author should you wish by clicking the folder icon button this will then update the blank box under the preferences "Authors A-Z Folders" folders location which you should have already set.
you will know the new folders have been created as the authors main folder will open diplaying the 2 folders inside

As with all my projects if you enter an item into the dropdown lists which is not in the list you will be asked if you would like to add the new Item, This will happen for both the Authors type and sub type.
so if you have added all the details correctly you should have a form like below I have used David Webers record from my personal system I do use https://www.goodreads.com/ for a lot of my details

Now you have your first author you can add book details to click the Magnifying glass Button which will display that records details again I have used David Webers books below is a completed book.
Adding an item to your book shelf is simple just double click the field with the book name and (year) these will then be added then just complete the rest of the form once done go back to your list and select all then click in the empty list, should it not update with your book press F9 to refesh the data.
