    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

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

    Resolution:
    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
