Can we restore an item that was accidentally withdrawn?

Applies to
  • WorldShare Circulation
  • WorldShare Record Manager 
Answer

Once an item has been withdrawn, it cannot currently be unwithdrawn. A new LHR and barcode must be created.

Depending on your deleted item retention setting the barcode for the withdrawn item may not be resuable until the old item is purged from the system. Editing the deleted item retention setting will effect all withdrawn items as well, including historical reporting assocaited with them, so please keep that in mind.
