Discard/Weed Workflow Improvements

9

When either weeding or finding individual items that should be removed from the collection, circulation staff need an easy and efficient way to mark items for discard/weed so that they can be sent to cataloging staff for further resolution. Currently, only staff with cataloging permissions can change an item status to discard/weed. As a result, current workflow for circulation staff is to either mark items as missing in order to place it in a status where it is invisible in the public facing OPAC and not holdable, and/or to put items in a copy bucket for later processing by cataloging staff. We would like to provide the ability for circulation staff to directly mark an item discard/weed similar to the process to mark an item missing or lost.
