    Automatic Delete or Suppress Brief Course Reserve Citations when a course ends

    • Product: Alma

    NOTE: Currently there is an issue with this functionality, course_restricted_bib_data_will_be_deleted set to TRUE does NOT result in the course restricted bib being deleted at this time. 


    Can a Course Reserves Operator also delete brief course reserve (reading lists) citations, after the course ends? If not, what is the recommended solution?


    The privilege to delete a bibliographic record is given only to a Cataloger Extended Role.

    Instead of enabling a limited role for this purpose, the development team offers suppress or auto-delete bib records based on the "course_restricted_bib_data_will_be_deleted" parameter.

    The "course_restricted_bib_data_will_be_deleted" is found in: Configuration Menu > Resources > General > Other Settings

    It indicates if the published course data will be deleted (true) or suppressed (false, which is the default) from Primo when the course becomes inactive.
