I agree that a GUI batch loader would be very helpful. However, several libraries need to batch load these patrons on a daily basis, since students may start programs at various times throughout the semester. So the nightly cron job script approach is pretty important for these cases, and I think it would be nice if there were a more standard way in Evergreen to do that particular approach. I'm wondering if we might consider including a very general, flexible patron batch import/update script in the support-scripts directory.
