In Koha 3.10 there is a new feature that will allow your library to define the “cost” of transferring materials from one branch to another. This tutorial will walk you through how to set up the transport cost matrix in Koha 3.10. You will first need administration rights and to be sure that you have the transport cost matrix turned on by setting the UseTransportCostMatrix preference. Once you have that turned on you will need to decide on how you want to calculate cost. This can be done in miles, in dollar amounts or using a sliding scale from 1 to 100. In my video I choose the latter as my model, but any numbering system will work.
If you have an idea for a tutorial video I should do or that you have done yourself (or found on the web) that we should include in this series, just drop me a line and I’ll add it.
