Deleting Bibliographic Records

Deleting Records via the Staff Catalogue
Deleting Records via a Record Bucket

Sitka’s Evergreen will automatically delete records when the last item attached to the record is deleted.

Records that are imported or created in Evergreen but never have a holding attached or a scoped 856 field added are automatically deleted when they’ve been in the catalogue for more than 3 months.

Records with holdings attached, physical or electronic, cannot be deleted.

Deleting Records via the Staff Catalogue

  2. Click on the MARC Edit tab.
  3. Click Delete Record.

  4. A pop up will appear. Click Confirm.
  5. Record is now deleted and only retrievable by a TCN (title control number) or record ID search.
