Quick question. Does anyone use Winnebago/Spectrum for their catalog? If so, when you take books out of the system, do you have to choose "weed" or can you just delete? In every other environment I would just delete the item. Here, the library assistant has chosen the "weed" function which keeps the items in the system as weeded. I would prefer to delete them completely from the system, but am wondering if there is a reason why that would not be the right thing to do. My assistant is a little resistant to change so I want to make sure that deleting from the system is fine before I make that change. Changing over to school librarian is going to be more of a challenge than I thought.

Anyone's help is really appreciated.

hey sue hope you have been well and doing well in ur new job . 

i think you will have to choose weed and you cannot delete

it directly as that would cause error in the root directory of 

the system . you might be able to delete them but that would not

totally wipe it of thee system . i was working for this display boards and

tradeshow booth designs company and they had the same system in their root directory . however

just depends what you are used to : )
