The annual Purge of Inactive Patron records will take place at end of December 2015. For the purposes of this report and purge, SCLS libraries define "Inactive Patron records" as patron records that have not checked out items in the last 2 years AND have been expired for at least one year AND owe less than $20.00.
Your library will be sent a list of patron records that are eligible to be purged. These patrons will:
- have your library listed as their home library;
- have not checked out items since December 2013;
- account expired before December 2014;
- have no holds on their record and
- owe less than $20.00.
When you receive your report, please review the records, especially the records with a Patron Category of WEB. If these WEB records are for temporary Internet or Database use, you may not want to delete them. If there are records that you DO NOT want purged, you must (manually) Renew those records so they will not be included in the final extraction. Otherwise you need do nothing further.
The deadline for review is Friday, December 18, 2014. We will re-run the report on Monday, December 21 to exclude any records that are modified, and will submit the records to be deleted that day.
