RDA-133 Add display of links to the User Preferences in the Profile page

Use Case

As we add more and more links to outside resources to RDA Toolkit (for example the links we are adding to the AACR2 display, see RDA-125), users would like to be able to turn off links that are not of interest in order to unclutter the display.

RDA-125 Add links to AACR2 display

Use Case

Beginning in April 2013, AACR2 will only be available online at RD Toolkit. Cataloger Desktop subscribers will need a subscription to RDA Toolkit to access the AACR2 rules. Frequent users of AACR2 on Catalogers Desktop are used the interface provided on that site and and will have similar expectations for AACR2 on RDA Toolkit.
