Hello François,

I'm glad you like Citeline, and thanks for the feedback.
> A few question about Citeline which I find promizing
> - the facets are not exported, is this a bug ?
The facets you select in Citeline should be exported to your Exhibit, so
if that's not happening then it is a bug. Could you provide us with more
details about what is going wrong?
> - is there some explanations on how to adapt the presentation to my university, remove the mit logo, and so on ?
Citeline is a service of the MIT Libraries, but the Exhibits you create
with it are hosted at your own university and are not branded with MIT
or Citeline. So are you thinking of running Citeline itself at your
university, instead of using the MIT service? You can, of course, the
code is all open source software in our repository, and there are
instructions for how to do this here
> - could you give a time estimation on when the downloaded files will work with other browsers then Firefox (Citeline does not work with Opera, by the way)
We aren't actively working on that right now, so I can't tell you when
it will be fixed... I'm hoping someone else will figure out the IE bug
before we do! I didn't know that Opera was also broken... these
javascript incompatibilities and very difficult to keep up with.
> - could we download and setup localy the scripts that are called by the downloaded file, so that we do not rely on MIT url ?
Yes, see the link I provided above.
> Thanks for any help !
you're welcome, and let us know how it turns out!
