to make it clear,
I donot want to break that wonderful feature that you can click and
integrate the biblio information from Koha web page into zotero (no
kidding : it IS great).
Problem is that, somehow, users come with the demand that koha is not
exporting this and that information (e.g. abstract, notes, other titles,
...) for zotero... And when investigating, it comes out that it is comes
both from the COiNS format, and its zotero support.
So I was just stating that as cool as it is, it still has limits, and we
investigated, and I pointed at some solutions.
It is great as it stands but still can be improved...
