    I'm creating a separate area for premium members that features more of a library with eBooks, videos, etc. There will be flip books (html), videos, workshops, etc.

    Each book/workshop, etc., would need to be preceded with a quick introduction (2-4 sentences about that the course is about). And the books are here to stir conversation amongst members.

    Right now I've built the 'skeleton' using following structure:

    Academy (category)
    - library (forum)
    - book title 1 (child forum)
    - book title 2 (child forum)
    - workshops (forum)

    Is there a better strategy to build what potentially could become a huge library?

    Thanks :)

    If it's going to be a huge library as you state, I would not recommend using forums, at all. See this thread: http://xenforo.com/community/threads/lots-of-sub-boards.22619/

    You'd be better off using a XenForo Page (or multiple), getting someone to change this modification: Change "forums" route to "view" | XenForo Community to change /pages/ to /library/ then creating an A-Z (such as domain.com/library/a

    then you can index your books into A-Z, and store them as separate files or create some kind of integrated system.
