Deleting Magazine Issues

Magazine issues can be deleted within Serials Check-in. Select the issues you want to delete and right-click. Select Delete.

A box will pop-up and ask “Are you sure you want to permanently delete the selected items?” Answer “Yes.” This will also delete the attached item record if there is one.

Alternatively, you can delete the item records in the Catalog module and the issues in the Check-in screen will also be deleted. This would be the same process as deleting other items being withdrawn from the collection. If you are deleting a large number of issues, you can scan them into a record set and batch change the status to Withdrawn before deleting the issues.

 

Deleting Issues Migrated from Sirsi

 

Issues that were migrated from Sirsi do not have issues in Polaris Check-In screens. These items can be deleted the same way other items are withdrawn from the collection. You can delete them one by one in the item record. If you are deleting a large number of issues, you can scan them into a record set and batch change the status to Withdrawn before deleting the issues.

 

Deleting SHRs

 

An SHR should be deleted when all of its items have been removed and it is no longer in use. The attached bibliographic record cannot be deleted if an SHR is still attached.

 

To delete the SHR, bring the record up on the screen. Click the icon that looks like an “X” to delete the SHR. A window will pop-up asking “Are you sure you want to permanently delete the selected items?” Click on “Yes.”
