    Attempting to delete bibliographic records via Import Profile, as described on pages 66-68 of the November 2013 Release Notes - does not delete these records


    3 Import Options:
    1.  Deletion of portfolios, via a PDA Repository Profile (defined in Acquisition > Patron Driven Acquisition (PDA)) (Nov 2013 New Release feature)

    2.  Deletion of bibliographic records, via a "regular" Repository Import -- only if there is no inventory/portfolio


    3.  Deletion/Deactivation Options for Electronic Portfolios and Linked Bibliographic Records (April 2014 New Release feature) - Deactivates Portfolio if POL. Deletes Portfolio if no POL; Deletes Bib if no Portfolio; only works if single portfolio attached

    Additional Information

    Delete in bulk can be done via sets and 'run a job' in Alma as well.
