Ability to search for and delete Courses that do not have a Reading List attached
To ensure that the LTI link works between our LMS and Alma we have to create a Course Record for all units that utilise the LMS. This results in thousands of Course Records being created in Alma each semester. However since not all units in the LMS use a Reading List only a fraction of these Course Records eventually have a Reading List attached. Therefore we have a lot of empty Course Records in Alma cluttering up the Course area in Alma and resulting in some confusion for Library staff in identifying active, current courses.
This problem will only continue to grow as we import thousands more empty courses each semester.
For this reason we would like an easy way within Alma or in Analytics to be able to identify Course Records that do not have a Reading List attached. Although there is a field in Analytics for 'Reading List Associated to a Course', filtering this field to "No" does not provide a list of Courses that do not have a Reading List attached. It would be incredibly useful if we could also run a job that will delete Courses without reading lists attached in bulk easily.

Agreed, it would be excellent to have a job for easy batch deletion of unused courses with criteria for selection - Ideally, one that could be scheduled to clean out old course codes older than a selected date without requiring us to schedule this into our calendars.
