Merge/link duplicate bookmarks in the system

Often the same resources are bookmarked by many different users, but with the metadata details varying slightly for each. It can be time-consuming to correct each occurence/variation. It would be very helpful if duplicate bookmarks could be merged...

★ Change the 'Add field' and 'Lookup' drop downs to BUTTONS ONLY, and the 'Has Part' and 'Part Of' options to TICK BOXES in the edit metadata window
