Unreceive a serial issue

Once you've found the serial (via Discover Items), then:

  • Use the Issues screen to manage and receive issues from current subscriptions.
  • Use the Item Copies screen for a comprehensive view of your serial holdings and the ability to edit them.

 Note: Serials data migrated from an ILS into WMS does not show up on the Issues screen, so all current subscriptions must be manually added via Manage Issues.

Unreceive issue

 Note: Unreceiving an issue does not change its first received date.

  1. Click the Receive Issues tab.
  2. Find the issue you want to unreceive. In the issue's Action column, click Receive or Unreceive. The Receive Issues window appears, listing the library's shelf copies (local holdings records) for the title.
  3. On the Receive Issues window, uncheck the Received box. The check mark and barcode disappear and Yes changes to No.
  4. Click Save.
    • In the Copies Received column, the number of copies received decreases by the number of copies you unreceived.
    • The item record for the issue is removed from the copy (local holdings record), which appears on the Issues and Copies screens (under Holdings for Selected Copy).
