Delete multiple local holdings records from a search results list

 Note:

  • You can only delete LHRs from the results list of a barcode index search. Selecting records from the results lists of other index searches (e.g., location, reproduction policy, etc.) will not activate the Delete Barcodes action.
  • You can enter up to 100 barcodes; however, you need to leave a space between each barcode entry. The system interprets this space as the Boolean OR between each barcode.
  • If you delete the last LHR associated with a bibliographic record, your OCLC holding symbol will be removed from the record.
  1. From the Scope drop-down list, select My LHRs.
  2. From the Index drop-down list, select Barcode.
  3. In the Term(s) text field, enter the barcode(s).
  4. Click Search.
  5. (Optional). Filter your search results.
  6. Select one or more LHRs that you want to delete.
     Note:
    • You can delete up to 100 local holdings records at a time.
    •  The Select All box (upper-left corner of results table) only selects the records on the current page. To expand the number of records on a page, select 20, 50, or 100 from the Rows drop-down list.
  7. Select Delete Barcodes from the Actions drop-down menu.
  8. From the Delete Selected Barcodes from the LHR dialog, click Delete. The selected LHRs are deleted and removed from their respective bibliographic records.
