Dear all,

Does anyone monitor new authority headings (all types) created?  If so, how
do you identify new headings created in a given time period?  Custom

At this moment, there is no easy way to identify those new headings.   Going
through the entire list of authority headings is very labour intensive work. 
I would like to manage this area a little more, after found quite a few
duplicate, unused, and even invalid/outdated headings.  

I would also like to see a more advanced method of global change of
headings, for example: 

$aHong Kong to $aHong Kong (China) [only those found in subfield $a], or 
$zHong Kong to $zChina $zHong Kong [only those found in subfield $z and
split into multiple subfield $z], or
$xPictorial works to $vPictorial works [only those found with subfield $x]

This will eliminate the need to change affected headings individually.

Looking forward to hear your comments ...

Kind regards,
