Nice, was able to do this through a Google account.

This worked for me

I could not make this work. I'm at  http://bnb.bibliographica.org/entry/GB5000530#
I see 
Pitman Collection [add]
in the sidebar.
But when I click "add" nothing happens.
When I click "Pitman Collection" I see my collection of 1 item.

Some further questions:

-- how to make bulk additions to a collection (e.g. all responses to a search like mathematics).

--- How large can a collection be ?

-- How can I export the data in my collections?

-- Generally, what facilities for bulk import/export of data collections?

Small bug: link to http://dewey.info/scheme/e18 on page above gives a 404

Great to see the progress
