EOS Catalog Search Procedure
Many of you have contacted me in the past regarding issues you have experienced when searching the EOS catalog for patrons, including search results which list records that have been removed.
Alexandra looked into this issue and has identified a way to eliminate removed records from appearing in search results.
When you are searching on behalf of a patron, search via the public OPAC site which is available at http://ummceosspr1.cvc.med.umich.edu/EOSWeb/OPAC/search/AdvancedSearch.asp , rather than the open EOS window that you use for materials checkout.
This will eliminate a lot of erroneous search results, especially as more progess is made in the catalog cleanup.
If you have any questions regarding this process, please let me know. As always, thank you for all your help.
