Admins: To refresh a PDA collection (to remove duplicates and titles no longer PDA-eligible)

You can clear out duplicates entries in your PDA collections, as well as titles that are no longer PDA eligible, using the following steps.   The process is a bit tedious if you have a lot of PDA collections.

  • Go to the Profile tab
  • Click “Edit Profile” for the first collection
  • Un-check the PDA box (to make this collection temporarily not PDA)
  • Click “Update
  • You’re then taken back to the Profile tab
  • Click “Edit Profile” for that same collection
  • Check the PDA box (to make this collection PDA again)
  • Click “Update
  • The system will warn you that only PDA-eligible titles will be included.  Note that any titles already on your site (even just in other active PDA collections) are not considered PDA-eligible, and so will be removed.
  • Repeat these steps for each of your PDA collections.
