I was wondering if there was a way to remove personal documents in bulk from the online archive, instead of clicking delete for every single book.

No. You have to delete items individually.

To delete all items, make a bookmarklet with following code as an address:
javascript:(function(){ var v = new RegExp("PersonalDocuments"); if (!v.test(document.URL)) { return false; } {a=document.getElementsByClassName('rowBodyCollapsed');for(var i = 0; i<a.length; i++){Fion.deleteItem('deleteItem_'+a[i].getAttribute('asin'));};return; }})();

Try also this if you want delete only some items:
Find the items with the search box and then you can use this bookmarklet to delete one page every time:

javascript:(function(){ var v = new RegExp("PersonalDocuments"); if (!v.test(document.URL)) { return false; } {a=document.getElementsByClassName('rowBodyCollapsed');for(var i = 0; i<a.length; i++){Fion.deleteItem('deleteItem_'+a[i].getAttribute('asin'));};return; }})();

Thanks for Giacomo1871. It does work! And I've made another bookmarklet can delete items more flexibly. Likewise: 1.Make a bookmarklet. 2.In personal documents page, click the bookmarklet, and there will be a checkbox in front of every item. 3.Select the box if you want delete the item, and there are three links can select ALL, NONE and REVERSE. 4.Click the bookmarklet again, the selected items will be deleted perfectly!
Here you are:
javascript:(function(){ var v = new RegExp('PersonalDocuments'); if (!v.test(document.URL)) { return false; } {a=document.getElementsByClassName('rowBodyCollapsed');b=document.getElementsByName('checkboxForDelete');if(b.length==0){document.getElementById('Row1Button').innerHTML += "<a href='javascript:(function(){for(var i=0;i<b.length;i++){b[i].checked=true;};})();'>All</a><a href='javascript:(function(){for(var i=0;i<b.length;i++){b[i].checked=false;};})();'> None</a><a href='javascript:(function(){for(var i=0;i<b.length;i++){b[i].checked=!b[i].checked;};})();'> Reverse</a>";for(var i = 0; i<a.length; i++){ tmp=document.getElementById('Row' + (i+1) + 'Button'); tmp.innerHTML += "<input type='checkbox' name='checkboxForDelete' >";};}else{for(var i = 0; i<b.length; i++){if(b[i].checked){Fion.deleteItem('deleteItem_'+a[i].getAttribute('asin'));}};}return;}})();

Please use the code blow below, fix a bug which would redirect page if not run this script in Personal Documents page:
javascript:(function(){ var v = new RegExp('PersonalDocuments'); if (!v.test(document.URL)) {alert("The script can only work in Personal Documents!");}else{a=document.getElementsByClassName('rowBodyCollapsed');b=document.getElementsByName('checkboxForDelete');if(b.length==0){document.getElementById('Row1Button').innerHTML += "<a href='javascript:(function(){for(var i=0;i<b.length;i++){b[i].checked=true;};})();'>All</a><a href='javascript:(function(){for(var i=0;i<b.length;i++){b[i].checked=false;};})();'> None</a><a href='javascript:(function(){for(var i=0;i<b.length;i++){b[i].checked=!b[i].checked;};})();'> Reverse</a>";for(var i = 0; i<a.length; i++){ tmp=document.getElementById('Row' + (i+1) + 'Button'); tmp.innerHTML += "<input type='checkbox' name='checkboxForDelete' >";};}else{for(var i = 0; i<b.length; i++){if(b[i].checked){Fion.deleteItem('deleteItem_'+a[i].getAttribute('asin'));}};}return;}})();

This works a little nicer for me in Firefox:

javascript: (function () {
var v = new RegExp('PersonalDocuments');
if (!v.test(document.URL)) {
alert("The script can only work in Personal Documents!");
} else {
a = document.getElementsByClassName('rowBodyCollapsed');
b = document.getElementsByName('checkboxForDelete');
if (b.length == 0) {
document.getElementById('Row1Button').innerHTML +=
"<a href='javascript:(function(){b = document.getElementsByName(\"checkboxForDelete\"); for(var i=0;i<b.length;i++){b[i].checked=true;}})();'>All</a>" +
"<a href='javascript:(function(){b = document.getElementsByName(\"checkboxForDelete\"); for(var i=0;i<b.length;i++){b[i].checked=false;}})();'>None</a>" +
"<a href='javascript:(function(){b = document.getElementsByName(\"checkboxForDelete\"); for(var i=0;i<b.length;i++){b[i].checked=!b[i].checked;};})();'> Reverse</a>";
for (var i = 0; i < a.length; i++) {
tmp = document.getElementById('Row' + (i + 1) + 'Button');
tmp.innerHTML += "<input type='checkbox' name='checkboxForDelete' checked=true>";
};
document.getElementById('pagination').innerHTML += "<a href='javascript:(function() { a = document.getElementsByClassName(\"rowBodyCollapsed\"); b = document.getElementsByName(\"checkboxForDelete\"); for (var i = 0; i < b.length; i++) { if (b[i].checked) { Fion.deleteItem(\"deleteItem_\" + a[i].getAttribute(\"asin\")); } };})()'>Delete Selected</a>";
} else {
for (var i = 0; i < b.length; i++) {
if (b[i].checked) {
Fion.deleteItem('deleteItem_' + a[i].getAttribute('asin'));
}
};
}
return;
}
})();

I came here to tell you about a bookmarklet that I made for this and I see somebody has already done it. Anyway, mine is easy to install (drag'n'drop) which can be handy for non tech-savvy people:

Thanks Pepa. Your bookmarklet works better than mass destroy now.
