The CARLI Office strongly recommends that I-Share libraries should routinely delete obsolete patron records from their databases. I-Share libraries may use the Voyager Patron Record Purge process to remove sensitive data for patrons who are no longer affiliated with their libraries. Besides removing personal information, deleting patron records keeps your patron database more up-to-date, which will help reduce effort in any future system migration.
