    Question:  


    How to delete HOL records without deleting the according BIB records?

     


    Answer:  


    Use "Load ALEPH Sequential MARC Records (manage-18)" with 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).

     

    AND

     

    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 record under the original system number which only has field DEL=Y remains.

     

    Additional Information

    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
