How to turn on Purchase Suggestions in the OPAC?

Koha offers a great feature for your library to allow patrons to make purchase suggestions via the OPAC. There are a few tools that you can use in conjunction with this feature that will help your library.

What is an On-Shelf Hold?

An On-Shelf hold is a hold that is placed by a patron or staff for an item that is currently available and on the shelf.

This dropdown is very long and not helpful to patrons if your library does not actually have material written in all the languages
