Damaged Maintenance Report

Modified on Tue, 25 Jan 2022 at 04:59 PM

There are two methods to retrieve items that are in damaged:


What to do: Each month, library staff is expected to look for damaged items in the stacks and with staff that is responsible for repairing or replacing these items. For any items found:

  • Scan the item ID in the Checkin Wizard if the damage is repaired; 
  • Check it out to XYZMENDING, if it needs to be repaired; or
  • XYZDISCARD if the item needs to be removed.

(where XYZ is your libray code)


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