How to delete a record stuck in the MD Editor

  • Product: Alma


I am trying to delete a record in the MD Editor, but I am not able to do so. I get the message: "An external process has changed the original record. It is recommended to reload original record." and the record appears stuck. How do I delete this record?


When a record appears stuck in the MD Editor and you want to delete it.

  1. Perform All Title search for the MMS ID> Save Query.
  2. Create a Set> then run the Delete Bibliographic Records job to delete the record.
