Merging group libraries

edited yesterday at 8:14am
Hi all,

This doc https://www.zotero.org/support/kb/merging_libraries suggests that RDF is the way to go for merging group libraries. Is this completely lossless regarding the visible metadata and files? Are there any gotchas?

In particular, is this a problem: https://forums.zotero.org/discussion/84562/dragging-non-downloaded-attachment-between-group-libraries#latest ?

The libraries I've got have a bunch of overlapping items. So I would be keen to preserve the owk:relations, as that would help me write a API script to merge items... I guess that isn't possible with the RDF route?

I also guess that the RDF route does not preserve folders?

Another route would be to use the API. To merge A onto B, go through A item by item and merge items into B. Sounds straight forward in theory, but in practice, well...

Has anybody done this before? Any thoughts?
