    Is there a way to stop a serial issue from being claimed other than arriving it or changing the expected arrival date to 2025 or something like that. If we have a title with an issue that we will never receive and we want to reflect it in our summary holdings how do we keep the issue but stop it from showing up on the claim report every time? We have tried to use the gap feature or changed the item process status to something other than Not Arrived but it still shows on the claim report.

    In order to avoid claiming specific serial issues you can do one of the following:

    1. Manually arrive the issues you do nit want to be claimed.

    2. Change the expected arrival date to a date very far into the future to exempt these issues from the claiming schedule (e.g. 20101231).

    3. Assign these items to a special item processing status then exclude them from the serial-44 service by selecting the appropriate option and check the relevant item process statuses in the Item Process Statuses list.
