    Unable to delete bib record, error: "cannot be deleted as it has associated resources"

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Alma

    Problem Symptoms:
    Trying to delete a bib record, a message is received: "Bibliographic Title [abc]- [MMS ID] cannot be deleted as it has associated resources"
    However, the "More Info" button shows no inventory or orders exist for this record

    Some workflows that cause this will be handled in the June 2014 Release

    Records that were created before the June 2014 Release can be deleted this way:
    * Create a temporary holding record
    * Delete it
    * Now it is possible to delete the bibliographic record
