A book may be withdrawn from collection/from the stock register and shelf list if: 

•  it is outdated 

•  worn out beyond repair 

•  found lost in stock verification 

•  damaged to the extent that it is unusable.

i)  If shelf list indicates only one copy one of the two courses is open 

  • The item can be reordered 
  • The item can be discarded, in which case the entire set of catalogue card including the shelf list card must be discarded.
