    Deleting "stub" Course Reserve doc records not attached to CNO

    We want to purge the xxx30 Course Reserves library of doc records not attached to a CNO.  We ran p_ret_01 in xxx30 and retrieved 3049 records.

    Before we run manage-33 to delete these, a question....

    One type of bib record retrieved was just a stub. Do they need to be retained as a placeholder so that the bib system number does not get used again? Is it OK to delete these?
    Example: Bib System number 000000001

    In Util F4: 000000001 000144 0004 0008FMT LBK0030LDR L-----nam----------a-----0040

    Two things:

    1. p_manage_33 does not physically delete records. It leaves a stub record (with the LDR, "DEL Y", etc., fields).

    2. In assigning new doc numbers the system uses the util g/2 last-doc-number value. It does not reuse lower numbers.

    Additional Information:

    See also, the article Can manage-33 be run for a Course library?
