    Question

    Can items be batch discharged? A lot of items were given a Lost status years ago and we would like to discharge them all from the patrons.

    Answer

    There is no batch discharge function in Voyager.

    One way to expedite manually discharging a large number of lost items:

    1. Query for barcodes associated with items. Example query:
    SELECT ITEM_BARCODE.ITEM_BARCODE
    FROM ITEM_BARCODE
    , ITEM_STATUS
    WHERE  ITEM_BARCODE.ITEM_ID=ITEM_STATUS.ITEM_ID
    AND ITEM_STATUS.ITEM_STATUS IN (13,14);
    1. Print barcodes in barcode font. Example:

    2. Open Circulation > Discharge
    3. Use barcode scanner to scan each item into window.
