Hello everyone,

One of the dspace users here submitted a duplicate item, but he does not want to just delete the duplicate item because someone might have bookmarked or referred to it.
I was wondering if I could delete the duplicate item, and then change the ITEM_ID value of the duplicate item's handle to point to the original item? Or this could have some side effect?

For example:

id/123 | 987
id/124 | 988 <- change this do 987 after deleting item 988

Or is there a better way to do it?
