Why is an item showing Withdrawn(Available) Status?

  • The item displays a Withdrawn(Available) Status.
Applies to
  • WorldCat Circulation

The Withdrawn(Available) Status is an indicator that a deleted item will be erased from the system after your institution's delete settings period (Service Configuration > WMS Circulation > Admin General > Deleted Items). So any item that displays this status will have its LHR data properly purged from the system. 

If an item has been withdrawn and it does not have the status (Available), the record will be erased, but LHR data may not be purged correctly.  This can lead to an "unknown barcode" error.
