Software Status Notes
Evergreen 2.8 (2015) YES

Documentation exists for deleting records in Evergreen at http://docs.evergreen-ils.org/1.6/draft/html/DeletingRecords.html. With Evergreen, an item deletion can retain the bibliographic or item record in an ‘inactive’ status. This will allow for the deletion, which would remove the item from the OPAC display or from consideration for holds targeting. In the case of bills, the item can be removed but still remain an active ‘bill’ in the patron record. For holds, the bibliographic record can be removed or if there are other items, the holds processes will target a new copy.
