Is there any place where is shown WHAT is being updated when a book update has taken place? Wil that just be minor textual updates of major new chapter and revision-updates? Like my latest Anchor Yale Dictionary update. What was updates?

Rarely do we find out what the changes were. Usually you can assume it is mostly minor stuff like fixing typos and adding links to resources that shipped after that resources was last updated. If it's a dictionary or encyclopedia that hasn't been done yet, it would include adding all the LCV (Logos Controlled Vocabulary) tagging. With Anchor, someone posted recently that it was mostly about adding lots of links. People who were very familiar with that resource have noticed a large increase in the number of links to other resources in their libraries. That was an area of weakness in that resource in the past.
