New features

Holds

  • [14695] Add ability to place multiple item holds on a given record per patron

    Koha now supports the ability for a patron to place multiple holds on a single bibliographic record, with the type and limits configurable as circulation rules.
    This new functionality is especially useful for records with heterogeneous items, where a patron may need to request multiple specific items.

  • [5260] Add option to send an order by e-mail to the acquisition module

    It will be possible to send order information to the vendor by e-mail. For now this feature can be triggered manually with a button before closing the basket.
    The order e-mail is based on the acquisition claim feature, but uses a new notice template: ACQORDER.

Cataloging

  • [14793] New cataloguing plugin unimarc_field_225a_bis

Circulation

  • [14610] Add ability to place article requests in Koha

Patrons

  • [3534] Patron quick add form

    This patch adds a new system preference: PatronQuickAddFields When either this pref or BorrowerMandatoryField is populated this will add a new dropdown to the bew patron toolbar.
    When a category is chosen from this dropdown the fields in PatronQuickAddFields and BorrowerMandatoryField will be displayed.
    There will be a button allowing a user to switch from the quickadd to the full form and fields will be copied between the forms when toggling.
    The Quick add will only be displayed on add of a new patron, future edits should display the full form.

  • [5670] Housebound Readers Module

    The Housebound module is an addition to Koha to allow the library to link together housebound patrons, volunteers, delivers and book choosers.
    Ability to create housebound profiles & scheduled visits for patrons.
    Ability to record users as Deliverers or Choosers (or both), using extended patron attributes.
    Ability to link choosers and deliverers to individual delivery runs.
