When you do a "Total delete" from the Cataloging Nav Map/Tree or when you run p_manage_33, which records, exactly, are being deleted?
Does item-deletion affect the item history, loan history, or event records?
The total-delete deletes the bib record and its indexes; any connected HOL records and their indexes; and any connected ADM records, their indexes, and the following bib/adm-related records in the ADM library:
z14, z16, z18, z20, z22,
z30, z36, z36h, z37, z37h, z38,
z68, z71,z78, z79,
z320, z321, z501.
[Internal note: The program which deletes the item-associated ADM records is ./com_io/io_delete_adm.pc.]
In addition, the associated z35*, z75, and z601 records have the document part of their record keys zeroed out, but are not deleted.
* The change to preserve the z35 was implemented in July, 2005.
Item-deletion does not affect any associated records.
See KB 5726 in regard to running the p_manage_33 batch delete of bib (and associated) records.
