Bug Description

The following is from the Web staff client in 3.1.2:

To delete/remove a copy alert from the Manage Copy Alerts interface, you have to do the following:

1) Select the Clear? checkbox
2) Click OK.

This is sort-of analogous to how a circulation worker might delete/remove a copy alert (Press the Clear button and click OK), but the interface is different.

Since the interfaces are already different, I propose that we use a term more intuitive to cataloging staff in the Manage Copy Alerts interface (e.g. delete, remove). Also, the click-a-checkbox-then-click-OK procedure seems unintuitive to me, though I can't quite put my finger on why.

Looking forward to hearing what y'all think.

I think delete is the best term.
