Add items to a list

Once you have created a list, you may add items to this list in several ways.

From the list page

From the list page, you may scan item barcodes in the the search box.

From a catalog search

On the other hand, you may perform a catalog search. Check items, click on “Add to”, select the list name, and save.



You can only add title to a public list only if the owner has set the permission to “Allow changes by anyone.”

Viewing lists


Private and public lists are sorted in two separated tabs.

On the list page, you may perform different actions:

  • Search column
  • Sort by column
  • Delete a list
  • Edit the list parameters

Only the list owner can modify the list parameters.

Remove items from a list


Click on the list name.

Check all items to remove and click on “Remove selected”

You may remove title from a public list, only if the owner has set the permission to “Allow changes by anyone.”

 Carousel plugin

Before adding a Koha plugin, you must enable the system preference UseKohaPlugins.

For more information about plugins, please refer to :

On the “Books carousel” page, click on “Download.”

Save the file on your computer.

In Koha,

Go to Tools > Tool plugins

Click on “Upload plugin”
Click on “Browse” and search for the plugin file.
Click on “Upload”

On the Carousel plugin line, click on “Action”

Select Configure


Select the default list (the list to display on the carousel). Then, select the font and background colors.


Click on “Apply configuration”

Uploading a new list to the carousel

On the carousel line, click on “Action”.

Select “Run tool”

Choose the “list name” and click on “Generate”

On the OPAC home page, notice the new carousel list.


Try to avoid overcrowding your carousel, since too many items will reduce cover images visibility. For example, the top carousel contains 20 items, while the carousel bellow has more than 50 items.

Appendix 1 : New item workflow suggestion

After cataloguing a new item, click on “Normal” view.


Click on “Add to” and select “List”

Choose your “New item list” and click on “Save.”


Keeping the list up to date

Go to Lists > Public list

Click on the list name and assess its content. Verify when each item was added to the list (see “Date added” column), and remove oldest titles.
