    We have a a different workflow for adding new editions on behalf of academic list owners but this suggestion would be of great benefit to us. At present we add new editions but we don't routinely communicate that have have made changes, as this would add more time on to our work.
    Therefore an automated option would be great and generate more engagement with academics with the list.

    This functionality really needs to be developed, there is a real need to use a system tool to update records, especially the 856 field, that does inevitably change over time. What is required is a tool that can do a full or limited (if we could create a set of problem records using 856 value) and update bookmarks based on an LCN look up match.
    Staffing resources at University libraries are limited and when changes to links occur, a huge amount of time is spent fixing things. At present we are having to maintain data in two places. The LMS and the Reading list system. The bulk update tool developed by Joe Munzer has limitations. Firstly, you need to install software on a University device (most staff don't have permission to do this). You still have to clean up the data manually into a txt file before using the tool. Last time we used it, it inserted extra weblinks rather than replace the old with a new. Thirdly, I'm not sure if it is currently working.

    At Sheffield Hallam, we have tidied specific platform links up in the last year or two, only to find broken links being re-introduced via academics old book-marks. If we had a refresh tool, it would fix these with errors with minimal staff intervention.
