New Link on OPAC
This new feature in Koha 20.05 adds a new link “Libraries” or “Library” to the navigation in the OPAC.
The new page links to a static URL that will provide further information about all libraries in the Koha installation, using the data from the library configuration page under Administration /Libraries.
This is by default set up in the area under the search bar, however since it is a URL, it could be placed somewhere else:
For multi-branch systems, a "libraries" page will list all the libraries in the system, linking to individual pages for each library showing more information.
For a single branch system, a 'Library" page will list the Library information.
This new page will display the full address, email, fax and further information from the Libraries page under Koha Admin.
Once a patron clicks on "Libraries" this is the OPAC view:
Each library itself will be clickable from this page. This will bring up a new page specific to the branch and will display more information from the Libraries area in Koha, specifically the OPAC information box.
If a library fills out the OPAC information box, that will be displayed on the new page specific to that branch.
For more information about this specific enhancement, here is a link to bug 13388.
