Couple's Library


If you would like two people to manage libib, such as a husband and wife, then there are a couple of ways this can be done.

Depending on how you setup your libraries, there will be different possibilities.

Sharing all libraries

Create a pro account  with 2 total managers: the account owner (the person who has registered the account), and a new admin account.

Remember, in Libib, libraries are a logical entity that encompasses a type of item. Such as a library of books, or a library of music, or a library of movies, or a library of video games.

We recommend that you create a library for each type of item that you wish to catalog. The couple on this account can add, edit and delete all items. Only the account owner can turn on lending, holds.

Each user has their own username, and the posts, ratings, reviews and status' are unique to each user. All other meta-data about an item are shared, so if one user adds to the tags for example, then the other user will see that change.

Each user has full control over which libraries are displayed at their public url:

Individual Library Management

If the couple wants completely separated libraries, where there is no ability to edit each others, then create a pro account with 3 total managers: the account owner, and two basic managers.

The account owner will always have access to all libraries, however by creating 2 additional basic manager accounts, you can silo off each user into their own set of libraries, not necessarily shared with each other.

For example:
-1 has access to library1, library2 and library5.
-2 has access to library3, library4 and library5 .

  • manager-1 can not view/edit/lend library3 or library4.
  • manager-2 can not view/edit/lend library 1 or library2.
  • both managers can view/edit/lend library5.

When the libraries are published
https://manager can only show libraries 1, 2 and 5.
https://manager can only show libraries 3, 4 and 5.

Creating, and assigning libraries will be the responsibility of the account owner, as basic users do not have the ability to assign themselves to a library. Additionally, only the account owner can turn on lending, holds.

Other options possible include (but not limited to):

Create libraries that are not shared or published at all.
Share libraries, but use tags to determine ownership.
