Koha How-To

Adding MarcOrg code per library

There is a new feature in Koha 17.11 that allows branches within a multi-branch system or consortium to add their specific Marc Organization Code to their records as they catalog. Prior to this, in Koha, there could only be one Marc Organization Code allowed in the Global System Preference: marccorgcode.

For libraries within a branch system or consortium, each library that has their own Marc Organization Code, can update their Library’s code within Libraries and Groups under the Administration Module.

There is a new field in this form that allows for a Marc Organization Code to be entered in:

If a library is unsure if they have a Marc Organization Code, they can visit the Library of Congress website for more information.

Once this Marc Organization Code is set up under the Libraries and Groups Module, create a new record - this Marc Organization code will be found in the 003.

This Marc Organizational Code will also appear in your authority records if your system preferences are set : AutoCreateAuthorities to generate and BiblioAddsAuthorities to allow.
