Monographs Preservation CORAL Resource

--Coral assigned, items to withdraw,  will have NO physical volume.  Follow steps 1-4.

Removing holdings in OCLC

Only when withdrawing the last remaining copy attached to a record, or when deleting an entire record.

  1. Open the correct OCLC record in Connexion
  2. Menu: Action
  3. Sub menu: Holdings
  4. Select "Delete Holdings."

Note that, as in the example, if we don't currently have holdings on that record, "Delete Holdings" will be greyed out.

Disposing of withdrawn items

The library cannot sell items purchased with state funds. Withdrawn items cannot go to the booksale for this reason and must be tossed out.
