All 2017 patron records will turn red, however they are flagged for deletion. In order to fully delete, choose Select All and then Purge Selected.*


*you can mark materials for deleting and opt to wait to purge until you are really sure. This is a great feature for patron records, holding records, and bibliographic records. If you do not purge, the items will remain flagged for deletion and will be rendered out of use.

OTHER NOTE (DELETING FACULTY/STAFF RECORDS):
To purge faculty and staff records, please search by their last name. You will have to do these individually, however, there shouldn't be more than 10 - 20 of these yearly, making it a pretty quick manually deletion.
