Ability to set an institutional level retention period for storage of bookmarks by list editors and creators

We've had a number of problems related to bookmarks over the years, where our list creators and editor have used older bookmarks without checking whether the links work. This is particularly a problem when switching suppliers, such as when Dawsone...

Bookmarking screen to include 'Note for library' and 'Note for students' fields

option to change author to editor field without having to re-enter the information

Increase compatibility with Law resources
