Automatic Edition Update on Lists
To have a way of checking the books edition in a list, in comparison to the catalogue. If there were any new editions available in the library by clicking a button you would be able to automatically update the books on your list to the latest edition available in the library.
This is similar to the request in this idea: http://ideas.talisaspire.com/forums/32805-talis-aspire-reading-lists-ideas-archive/suggestions/1235711-update-e-book-entries-to-the-latest-edition
As discussed in that idea, we will not force the use of the newer editions as there may be a pedagogical requirement to use a specific edition and different institutions. However, the List Dashboard provides edition indicators including those in the library catalogue. We are also currently investigating the exposure of edition indicators in the reviews area

It would be extremely useful if, when updating an item on a reading list, a list of all the reading lists the item is on could be displayed with the option of updating all the lists at the same time.
Currently, if an item is on multiple lists, the option is sometimes, but not always, given to update some of the lists but not all. If an item is on many lists, the process of updating them all is very time-consuming.
