If the collection gets updated you will see the item highlighted.
Can you please tell me which browser you are using? Did you tried once,
or more times? It works from here, I wonder if maybe was a database
timeout or similar...

This is still not possible, though for sure it would be good to have.

Right now there is no predefined limit on the size of the collection,
though maybe there is for some 'renders' of the collections (the
collections page, for example, http://bibliographica.org/collection,
displays 20 collections)

> -- How can I export the data in my collections?
Sono you will be able to access from the web interface the .rdf / .nt /
.n3 / .json versions of the collection as it happens right now with the
works, i.e. http://bnb.bibliographica.org/entry/GB5000530 is also
available as http://bnb.bibliographica.org/entry/GB5000530.rdf,
http://bnb.bibliographica.org/entry/GB5000530,n3 etc

This is part of future development, as in export to your zotero or other
features. Good to see that you also look for them!

As Karen points out, this external resource is not resolving. The e18
part of it is the release of the Notation, that can change the meaning
of it! Sadly, the notation '213.451' can be one subject in the Dewey
scheme version e18 and another in the e22... usually just adding new
subjects but sometimes changing the meaning, if I am not mistaken.

I still dont know how far can we go on using the Dewey propietary scheme
though... but the idea is to be able to browse by it at least (see
https://bitbucket.org/okfn/openbiblio/issue/42 )

Thanks for your comments!
