In Book Creator, there is an option to duplicate a book.
The main reason for using this is to use a book as a template. It's also part of the student/teacher workflow. Let's image a teacher has created a template book that she wants to make available for all her students to work from.

- Click the Books icon beneath the book you want to duplicate.
- Choose Copy book. You may be asked which library you want to place the duplicate book in.
