Discard/Weed Workflow Improvements

10

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.
