We’ve automated the deletion at 5 years in Indiana, but libraries may manually delete them according to local policy at any time up until then.
I’ll note that we also put Discard/Weed, In Process, and On Order in that automated process since materials hanging out in those statuses unchanged after 5 years are usually housekeeping remainders/long gone/never materialized.
