There are three methods to retrieve items that are in mending:

What to do: Each month, library staff is expected to look for mending items in the stacks and with staff that is responsible for repairing or replacing these items. For any items found or have been repaired, please scan the item ID in the Checkin Wizard to remove the item from the MENDING status.

Retention: After twelve months, any items in MENDING will be discarded.
