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.
