Caliber is an open-source e-book library management application that lets you manage your e-book collection, convert e-books between different formats, sync with popular e-book reading devices, and read your e-books with the included viewer.

It acts as an e-book library and also allows format conversion, news feeds to e-book conversion, as well as e-book reader synchronization features and an integrated e-book viewer.

Caliber features include: library management; format conversion (all major ebook formats); synchronization with e-book reading devices; grab news from the web and convert it into an e-book; display many different e-book formats, giving you access to your book collection on the Internet using a simple browser.

New features in Caliber 6.1.0:

  • Full text search: Added a button to reindex a book, useful if the book content has been modified outside of caliber

  • Search queries now support quoting using “docstrings” for easier escaping

  • Linux Installer: Look for libEGL as QtGui module in Qt 6 and many Linux servers don’t have it installed.
