Koha Question of the Week: What is the Reservoir in Cataloging?

Each Friday, we will bring you a new Koha Question of the Week. We will select real questions that we receive and share the answers with you!

Question:What is the Reservoir in Cataloging?

Answer: Records imported using the Stage Marc Records for Import tool remain in the ‘reservoir’ until they are cleaned. Also, any z39.50 searches that a library performs in cataloging will also appear in the reservoir.

A library can still view these records stored in the reservoir under the actions option. Koha also has a column "coming from" to show where this record was originally from. It could have the marc file name or the z39.50 target.
