Unfortunately, this script is not working at the moment as the BNB Sparql endpoint has been taken down:
Unfortunately we have had to disable the SPARQL endpoint on bibliographica.org. This is because we have encountered some bugs using the ODBC interface to Virtuoso that have yet to be resolved.
As a stopgap we are communicating with the quad store over HTTP but this means we had to enable write access to the endpoint. Unfortunately this means that the endpoint cannot be made publicly accessible at this time.
We hope to fix this in the future.
I've taken this page down rather than serve up server errors although I will re-instate it if the endpoint is re-activated sometime
in the future and I if get to hear about it. As it is really a proof-of-concept system, I hope not too many people are put out by missing the Booklist.
