Hi, thanks for your explanation.  It was enlightening and educational and makes 
lots of sense.  Thanks for taking the time to tell us.  Have a blessed day.

  Oh, there's a variety of reasons to withdraw a book. If we get a book from a 
publisher, we have to withdraw the previous one. If someone submits a BSO, of 
course I yank the previous one. If someone files a book quality report, the 
previous copy will be withdrawn. Sometimes a college student is so desperate 
for a book, that I put a raw scan into the collection (usually rated good), so 
the person can have at least something to read for their class. When the 
outsourcers are done with the book, I put the proofread copy in and remove the 
raw scan. (This is fairly rare, thank goodness.) 
  A few days I withdrew about a dozen books that Engineering said were corrupt. 
No one could open them or read them, I guess. 
  I do NOT withdraw books because someone disagrees with what the author says, 
or is offended by the contents of the book. Those books stay in.
  Oh, looks like the bug about new books has been fixed, so there are now new 
books in the new books list! Wahoo!

  Hi, Carrie, any reason for withdrawing books than testing the bugs that 
engineering needs to fix?  What books would be needing to be removed from the 
collection?  Thanks, hope all goes well with this and approvals.

    Hi gang,

    It looks like there's a new bug in the system such that the new book list 
is not being updated with new books. About 24 hours, it stopped adding our 
newly approved books. We've added about 50 books, and they just don't show up. 
We've withdrawn some books, and they still appear when we search the 
collection. Very strange! Anyway Engineering has been notified, so hopefully a 
fix will be coming soon.

    Thanks for your continued patience with this!
