How to delete HOL records without deleting the according BIB records?
Use "Load ALEPH Sequential MARC Records (manage-18)" with the following parameters
* "Procedure to run" = "Update current records in the database"
* "If updating current records" = "Delete a record"
Make sure that you are connected to a HOL library OR select the according HOL library in field "Library:" (last field of the service template).
Make sure that your input file is in Aleph Sequential format (e.g. Output of print-03).
The HOL record including all fields (also field LKR which holds the link to the BIB record) will be deleted. A stub record with a "DEL $$aY" field will remain.
NOTE: The same procedure can/would be used for deleting ADM records.
The following checks in xxx60/tab/check_doc may be relevant when deleting HOL records:
CATALOG-DELETE check_doc_delete_item check for linked items
CATALOG-DELETE check_doc_delete_copies check for linked subscriptions
Note: As described in the article " p_manage_33: running in ADM or HOL library " you should not and cannot run the manage-33 Service in an HOL library.
