The Library tool enables you to access files located on your local computer or on external drives and networks. The Library tool is a filtered file explorer that displays Catalogs, Sessions, albums, projects, groups, folders and supported files.
The Library tool tab in Capture One is where all file navigation and organization takes place. Navigate via the hierarchical tree-view to a folder that contains the image files you wish to edit. Thumbnails of the images within your selected folder will be created and displayed in the Image Browser.
Capture One applies non-destructive editing because any image adjustments will not affect the actual RAW file – only the Capture One settings file will change. Create a catalog or session to help organize your workflow.
A Catalog has more options for organizing images using virtual folders (Projects, Groups, and Albums), and while it is essential with one master or several large Catalogs, there are still many benefits for using them with smaller project-oriented Catalogs or Sessions. Regardless of which management option you’re using, the Library tool tab is where all file navigation and organization takes place.

Why does my library tool toggle only show one of my sessionss? I have created 2 sessions (2020, 2021), but the toggle at the top of the library pane only shows one session and the option to "clear menu." I would expect the toggle at the top would show both sessions and allow me to navigate between the two.
If you clicked on 'Clear menu' before, there will be only the current item in the menu.
Open the other Session from the main menu File -> Open and navigate to the .cosessiondb file.
I've just installed Capture One 188.8.131.52 (windows 10) and I don't see "System Folders" in the Library tool tab. How do I add that to the Library tool tab?
okay, got it. Creating an new session did the trick (instead of opening a new session)
