There's no built-in concept of "moving" library files, and any such tool would be destructive in the sense that they would no longer exist in their original locations.
Instead, I built a tool for copying a group's entire library to another group. See attachment. I then ran the tool to copy each item from https://commons.gc.cuny.edu/groups/f19-urban-ed-course-historical-perspectives-on-urban-education/ to https://commons.gc.cuny.edu/groups/fall-20-urban-ed-historical-perspectives-course/. At this point, any unwanted items can be deleted. I'm not sure I understand the list provided to do the deletions myself, but in any case it should be a fast task (much faster than re-uploading the whole library).
