EBSCOhost e-audio to OneClickDigital - Notifying Users

We have 450 records for purchased titles and close to 3000 for subscribed titles. We also have close that same number of titles whose link sends the user to a soon to die source. So now I have to delete a load and then bring in the same title records with new links.

I and our library consortium staff are not happy campers with such a short notice.
