    To be really useful, the application should let us remove those pesky libraries!

    One thing missing is the ability to change the order the folders added to the library are listed in the library.
    This is by default first to last added order.
    Being able to move them up and down in this list would be great!

    I have attempted to use Librarian but can not get it to work. After downloading the zip file, I click on "librarian.exe" and a window comes up that 'Librarian has stopped working' and Windows is checking for a solution to the problem. Do you have any suggestions?

    I reimagined the way i get the libraries list.
    Within few days Librarian will be updated to 3.1, this must resolve the issue.

    Calcasieu I figured out your issue.
    Librarian is not 1 exe file, it is 3 files , one exe and 2 dll.
    One of your dlls is damaged or missing.
    Please re-download the app, unpack everything in one folder and try again.

    Hi, So it's open and lists can be added, changed etc...
    Now the important point. How to add files to these libraries?
    Is it just a collection with an icon that link to the sub dir(s) where the files are dropped?
    Can new files be added to these collections by a save command or so?

    Cant add folders from mapped network drive on Win 8.1. They get added to the list in Librarian. But once you exit they are gone.

    It appears in yellow because it uses a system icon for opened folder.
