Hi Angela,

At my previous job we had a similar problem with Archive-It OAI imports into 
PrimoVE. We had to go ask ExLibris to remove the records from Primo as this was 
something we couldn't do ourselves (!). I don't remember the details, as our 
cataloging librarian handled it, but I think you should start with the 
assumption that this is a PrimoVE issue.

Subject: [Archivesspace_Users_Group] Suppressed ArchivesSpace records in OAI-PMH

I'm not sure if this is an ArchivesSpace issue or an Alma/Primo issue. I'm 
starting with ArchivesSpace.

We have a hosted ArchivesSpace instance, with one repository set up to expose 
resource records via OAI-PMH. On the other end, we have an Alma discovery 
import profile set up to load these records into Primo VE. (The records are 
only being loaded and displayed in the Primo VE discovery layer; they are not 
being loaded into the Alma catalog.) This has been running smoothly for many 

Our new problem (or more likely an old problem that we never had the 
opportunity to notice before) is that resource records that have been 
unpublished and suppressed in ArchivesSpace are still showing up in Primo VE.

I've looked at both the OAI-PMH settings in ArchivesSpace and the discovery 
import profile in Alma/Primo, and I can't see any setting to toggle 
inclusion/exclusion of suppressed records.

How can I prevent suppressed ArchivesSpace records from being exposed for 
OAI-PMH harvesting?

Or is the problem on the Primo VE side, with it failing to remove suppressed 

Thank you!
