MARC frameworks edit

These modifications consist of adding a “YES/NO” menu in the (942n) tag, so you can easily select « YES » if you want to hide a record. It is important to edit the (942n) tag of each MARC framework saved in Koha.

The selection menu options are defined by the “YES_NO” authorized values, an authorized values category which is already programmed in your system.

If you are creating a new MARC framework, don’t forget to add this feature in the (942n) tag.

1. Go to: Administration › MARC framework
2. Select the MARC framework
3. Click on « Actions»
4. Select « MARC Structure»
