Automatic scanning and adding new epub-files to AEM database

Hi,
I just bought AEM. I am in the process of starting. I am capable of using the scan function to add directories to add books to my database.
What I would like to know is:
1) what happens when after a while I want AEM to perform a scan that adds only newly added epub-files to the database without re-adding all the books that already are in my database.
2) if I edit books' metadata, will AEM keep that info after a scan?
3) is there a function that allows you to edit books' metadata directly in the main screen (like Excel)

Thanks for any answer!

Hi SandradW,
1. The Scan tool allows to remove duplicates (the books that are already in the database). There is a button for that in the bottom of the Scan window
2. Alfa will scan the current metadata
3. Yes, in the Book Card you can open the window for editing metadata http://alfaebooks.com/help/edit_ebook_metadata
