Update an item record from DOI, ISBN or LCN
At present, Aspire offers the ability to populate a blank Bookmark from a DOI. Once a Bookmark has been Saved, the populate-from-DOI option disappears.
There are several use cases in which the ability to update (effectively to overwrite) an Item/Bookmark record from a DOI (and also an ISBN or local LCN) look-up could be very useful.
Case 1: An academic has created a poor quality Bookmark from a journal web site not supported by the Bookmarklet. The relevant DOI is identified, and this is added by a librarian (or other reviewer) to an 'Update' value field. Full metadata is extracted from CrossRef overwriting existing values and creating an full Article/Part of a Journal record with DOI link.
2. An academic has added a basic Book bookmark from a publisher website. The library purchases the book. In the Item record, an LCN 'lookup' value is added and metatada is extracted from the library catalogue.
We released this on 22nd July 2011

Chris - yes, the Story has summarised the request exactly, thanks. Good to hear that it was already on the radar. This enhancement would significantly reduce one of the more labourious aspects of our item QA processes, and would be welcomed by colleagues in Acquisitions, Metadata and Liaision teams!
