Is there an expectation that we automatically replace our missing retained items? What is the process for reporting missing items?

Yes, it is expected that missing items that you’ve committed to retain for EAST will be replaced. If the item is able to be replaced with a copy with the same OCLC number there is no need to report the change. If an item is replaced by a different edition, please be sure to update OCLC to have your commitment on the correct record.

While replacing the missing title holdings is the preferred route, if there are items your library can not to replace due to cost or availability, please follow the semi-annual reallocation process.  All changes to EAST retentions should be reported using the EAST Reallocations Request Form.
