What needs to be updated?

What content does not need to be updated?

    • The link is to the actual thing rather than the record

    • i.e. a link to the article in the database or an ebook in its platform

  • Look for a vendor in the permalink

    • If it has “eds” or “fcla”: It will need to be updated

    • If it is not: Test it to find where it leads to assess

Step One: Identify content that will need updating
