Perhaps if you exported data from lists that re likely to have items/bibs deleted after you have collected them, you could keep an archive of data.

Subject: Re: [CODE4LIB] What can be done to stop deleting of records belonging to users of our Minuteman Library Network in Massachusetts?

a) Forensics studies deal with how to retrieve "deleted" "unarchived"
data. So called "deleted" data is actually available.

b) Setup the system not to delete records belonging to users. Let users keep their information saved for followup. Or at the very least notify users beforehand.

Example. Title wrongfully deleted. Title replaced by 8 places Record number, lower case letter with 7 numbers.
