    Question

    How to delete Voyager records from Primo.

    Answer

    Create an XML file using the format below as a template:

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <OAI-PMH xmlns="http://www.openarchives.org/OAI/2.0/"
    xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
    xsi:schemaLocation="http://www.openarchives.org/OAI/2.0/
    http://www.openarchives.org/OAI/2.0/OAI-PMH.xsd">
      <ListRecords xmlns="">
        <record>
          <header status="deleted">
            <identifier>477608</identifier>
            <datestamp>2014-03-26</datestamp>
          </header>
          <metadata/>
        </record>
        <record>
          <header status="deleted">
            <identifier>406088</identifier>
            <datestamp>2014-03-26</datestamp>
          </header>
          <metadata/>
        </record>
      </ListRecords>
    </OAI-PMH>
    

    In the above, the <identifier> is the BIBID or <control/sourcerecordid> from Primo.

    Tar and gzip the file

    Copy the .tar.gz file to the Voyager directory where Primo harvests the ongoing files.

    The file will be harvested by the next regular pipe run and record(s) deleted following completion of the Primo processes.
