Any ideas on how to do this? I'm trying to obtain a list of datasets that
are in a Shared Data Library. I can obtain the Library ID and FolderIDs
using BioBlend. However, I now want to get a list of dataIDs from within
the Library/Folder structure. I don't see a function which accomplishes
this in BioBlend. The closest thing I could find is "show_folders" (under
"Libraries"). However, this seems to just provide information regarding the
folder and not its contents. Is there a way to list the contents of a
"Shared Data Folder"? There seems to be similar functionality for what I'm
after in "History" (e.g.  show_matching_datasets) but not for "Library".

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
