import.pl -OIDtype idnumber <collname>
to make it go.

No- just standard favourites/bookmarks ala Internet
I don't know of any facility in greenstone store 'bookmarks' (or other
information from the user) on the server side at the moment. I believe
there is work on controlling access to collections with a username and
password; once your have that I think adding bookmarks/a bookbag wouldn't
be too hard to do.
Also -there is a company http://www.glsn.com/ who support a customised
version of greenstone that *may* already do this. (Better ask them - I
don't know for sure)

I am sure you could bookmark individual pages as easily as you can bookmark
individual documents in greenstone.
format DocumentText '<h3>[Title]</h3>\n Bookmark: <a href="
this works for me.
Let me know if you have any troubles,

Would a bookmark link, as you have talked about it here, be similar to a
check box or other marking system that the user could mark to indicate
items that would be added to a personal list? - or a placeholder to which
they could return in a longer document, such as in the case of texts, to
continue reading where they left off? Thank you!

Making a bookmark link in format statements without the extra stuff should
be fairly easy.
