Hey Marlene,

It's only looking for the UPDATE_RECORD permission when you go to
un-delete a record.  It'd be a one-line code change to add a more
specific permission.

Right now, records don't have owners, so the depth/level of the
permission shouldn't matter.

However, a future version of Evergreen (I'm not sure when) will
optionally allow for library ownership of specific bib records, so it
may be worth giving some thought to those levels ahead of time.
