Patron clubs create clubs in which patrons may be enrolled. It is useful for tracking summer reading programs, book clubs and other such clubs.

Wichtig

Staff will need the clubs permissions to edit clubs, templates and enroll patrons. To learn how to set patron permissions, go to the patron permissions section of this manual.

Creating a new club template

Click on the ‚New club template‘ button. Here you can add fields that can be filled out at the time a new club is created based on the template, or a new enrollment is created for a given club based on the template.

Patron import

  • Get there: More > Tools > Patrons and circulation > Import patrons

Das Werkzeug für den Benutzerdatenimport kann jederzeit verwendet werden, um weitere Benutzer nachzuladen. Es wird häufig in Hochschulen und Schulen eingesetzt, wenn ein neuer Jahrgang von Studenten oder Schülern beginnt.

Creating a patron import file

You can download a blank CSV file with a header from the start page of the patron import tool that you can use as a template for your patron import. The header contains all fields that can be used with the patron import tool. You can delete fields and columns you don’t need with the exception of a few mandatory ones. When overlaying, if your new .csv includes blank columns, any existing values in patron records will be overwritten with blanks. It is best to remove any blank columns in a .csv to ensure no existing data is removed.

Wichtig

cardnumber, surname, and all fields you have defined in the BorrowerMandatoryField preference are required and must match valid entries in your database.

Wichtig

The ‚password‘ should be stored in plaintext, and will be converted to a Bcrypt hash.

Sprechen Sie mit Ihrem Systemadministrator über mögliche Optionen, wenn Ihre Passwörter bereits verschlüsselt vorliegen

Wichtig

Date formats should match your system preference, and must be zero-padded, e.g. ‚01/02/2008‘. Alternatively you can supply dates in ISO format (e.g. ‚2008-12-01‘).

Wichtig

If your data contains special characters or diacritics, make sure your file is encoded in UTF-8. Otherwise, the special characters will not be imported correctly.

Hinweis

If loading patron attributes, the ‚patron_attributes‘ field should contain a comma-separated list of attribute types and values.

  • The attribute type code and a colon should precede each value.

    • Zum Beispiel: „INSTID:12345,BASEBALL:Cubs“

    • Anführungszeichen sind notwendig, wenn mehrere Werte definiert werden.

    • Since values can contain spaces, additional doubled-quotes may be required:

      • „INSTID:12345,BASEBALL:Cubs,““BASEBALL:White Sox““

Hinweis

It’s possible to set restrictions using the patron import tool. If the expiration date and comment match an existing restriction, the one in the import file will be skipped. So a patron import can be repeated multiple times without creating duplicate restrictions. But if one of the criteria is different, a new restriction will be added.

Importing patrons

Once you have created your file, you can use the patron import tool to bring the data into Koha.

  • Choose your CSV file

    image255

  • Choose to match on ‚cardnumber‘ or ‚username‘ to prevent adding of duplicate card numbers to the system. Additional matchpoints can be set up using patron attributes marked as unique.

    image256

  • Next you can choose default values to apply to all patrons you are importing

    • For example, if you’re importing patrons specific to one branch you can use the field on the import form to apply the branch code to all those you are importing.

  • Finally, you need to decide on what data you want to replace if there are duplicates.

    • Vorhandene Datensätze werden anhand des Feldes, das zum Abgleich angegeben wurde, gefunden, um Dubletten zu vermeiden

    image257

    • When using patron attributes in your installation, you can choose how they are handled on import. You can either decide to always overlay all patron attributes or you choose to only replace patron attributes included in your import file. This will leave other attributes untouched.

    image1355

Notices & slips

  • Get there: More > Tools > Patrons and circulation > Notices & slips

All notices and circulation receipts (or slips) generated by Koha can be customized using the Notices & slips tool. The system comes with several predefined templates that will appear when you first visit this tool.

image258

Hinweis

  • You can customize the columns of this table in the ‚Table settings‘ section of the Administration module (table id: lettert).

Jede Benachrichtigung kann bearbeitet, aber nur einige wenige können endgültig gelöscht werden. Damit werden Fehler vermieden beim Versuch des Systems, eine Benachrichtigung ohne hinterlegtes Template zu generieren. Jede Benachrichtigung kann für jede Bibliothek bearbeitet werden. Standardmässig werden alle Benachrichtigungen für alle Bibliotheken angezeigt.

If you have a style you’d like applied to all slips you can point the SlipCSS preference to a stylesheet. The same is true for notices, using the NoticeCSS preference to define a stylesheet.

You will also want to review the Customising notices and slips wiki page for more information on formatting these notices.

Adding notices and slips

Eine neue Benachrichtigung oder Quittung erstellen

  • Click ‚New notice‘

    image259

  • Wählen Sie, für welche Bibliothek diese Benachrichtigung oder Quittung ist

  • Wählen Sie das Modul, zu dem diese Benachrichtigung gehört

  • The Code is limited to 20 characters

  • Use the name field to expand on your Code

    • Hinweis

      With overdue notices, be sure to put your branch name in the description as well so that it will be visible when setting up your triggers.

  • Next you can customize the notice for every possible delivery method

    • Für jede Benachrichtigung sollte ein Text für Email konfiguriert werden

      image1220

    • If you’re using the TalkingTechItivaPhoneNotification service you can set up a Phone notification

      image1221

    • Wenn gedruckte Benachrichtigungen benötigt werden, können diese als nächstes konfiguriert werden

      image1222

    • If you have enabled SMS notices with the SMSSendDriver preference you can set the text for your SMS notices next

      image1223

  • Each notice offers you the same options

    • If you plan on writing the notice or slip in HTML check the ‚HTML message‘ box, otherwise the content will be generated as plain text

    • Message subject is what will appear in the subject line of the email

    • In the message body feel free to type whatever message you feel is best, use the fields on the left hand side to enter individualized data from the from database.

      • Hinweis

        Review the Customising notices and slips wiki page for more information.

      • Wichtig

        Overdue notices can use <<items.content>> tags by themselves, or use <item></item> to span all of the tags. Learn more about the Overdue notice markup

        • On overdue notices make sure to use <<items.content>> tags to print out the data related to all items that are overdue.

        • The other option, only for overdue notices, is to use the <item></item> tags to span the line so that it will print out multiple lines. One example for the <item></item> tag option is:

          <item>“<<biblio.title>>“ by <<biblio.author>>, <<items.itemcallnumber>>, Barcode: <<items.barcode>> , Checkout date: <<issues.issuedate>>, Due date: <<issues.date_due>> Fine: <<items.fine>> </item>

      • Wichtig

        Only the overdue notices take advantage of the <item></item> tags, all other notices referencing items need to use <<items.content>>

      • Hinweis

        To add today’s date you can use the <<today>> syntax

      • Hinweis

        If you don’t want to print the patron’s full name on your slips or notice you can enter data in the Other name or Initials field for each patron and use that value instead.

    • The system preference TranslateNotices will add tabs for each installed language to the notices editor. The notice defined in the ‚Default‘ tab will be used if there is no preferred language set for a patron.

      image1335

Preview notice templates

For some notices it is possible to preview the notice template showing how it would look to a specified patron for a particular item or record.

If a notice template is previewable the notice template header will contain a field to enter preview data

image1342

Fill in the necessary information for the template then click the Preview button below the message body. The preview dialog will indicate if there are any problems generating the notice template preview.

Overdue notice markup

When creating your overdue notices there are two tags in addition to the various database fields that you can use in your notices. You will also want to review the Customising notices and slips wiki page for information on formatting item information in these notices.

Wichtig

These new tags only work on the overdue notices, not other circulation related notices at this time.

These tags are <item> and </item> which should enclose all fields from the biblio, biblioitems, and items tables.

Ein Beispiel für die Verwendung dieser Tags in einer Benachrichtigung wäre:

The following item(s) is/are currently overdue:

<item>"<<biblio.title>>" by <<biblio.author>>, <<items.itemcallnumber>>, Barcode: <<items.barcode>> Fine: <<items.fine>></item>

Wenn zwei Exemplare überfällig sind, könnte die Mahnung so aussehen:

The following item(s) is/are currently overdue:

"A Short History of Western Civilization" by Harrison, John B, 909.09821 H2451, Barcode: 08030003 Fine: 3.50
"History of Western Civilization" by Hayes, Carlton Joseph Huntley, 909.09821 H3261 v.1, Barcode: 08030004 Fine: 3.50

In order to send the overdue notices that you defined using the Notices & slips tool, you need to first set the triggers to have these messages.

Wichtig

In order to have overdue notices sent to your patrons, you need to set that patron category to require overdue notices.

Wichtig

Depending on the value of your OverdueNoticeCalendar preference the delay may or may not include days the library is closed based on the holiday calendar.

The Overdue notice/status triggers tool gives the librarian the power to send up to three notices to each patron type notifying them of overdue items

image260

  • Delay is the number of days after an issue is due before an action is triggered.

    • Wichtig

      If you want Koha to trigger an action (send a letter or restrict member), a delay value is required.

  • Um weitere Benachrichtigungen zu verschicken, klicken Sie auf die Reiter ‚Zweite‘ und ‚Dritte‘ Benachrichtigung

  • If you would like to prevent a patron from checking items out because of their overdue items, check the ‚Restrict‘ box, this will put a notice on the patron’s record at checkout informing the librarian that the patron cannot check out due to overdue items.

    • If you choose to restrict a patron in this way you can also have Koha automatically remove that restriction with the AutoRemoveOverduesRestrictions preference.

  • Next you can choose the delivery method for the overdue notice. You can choose from Email, Phone (if you are using the iTiva Talking Tech service), Print and SMS (if you have set your SMSSendDriver).

    image262

    • Hinweis

      A Postscript Point is 1/72“, an Adobe Agate is 1/64“, an Inch is 25.4 SI Millimeters

  • Next, note if this layout is for the front or the back of the patron card

    • Hinweis

      You will need a layout for both the front and back of your card if you have 2-sided library cards, this option doesn’t allow you to print two sided cards, just lets you track which side of the card you’re designing.

  • You have the option of adding up to 3 lines of text to your card. Your text can be static text of your choosing and/or fields from the patron record. If you want to print fields from the patron record you want to put the field names in brackets like so - <firstname>

  • Für jede Zeile Text können Sie die Schriftart, Schriftgröße und Position auf der Karte durch die Angabe der X- und Y-Koordinaten angeben.

  • In order to show the barcode and the patron card number you will need to check the ‚Print card number as barcode‘ option. This will turn the patron card number into a barcode. If you want the number to print in human readable format you will need to check the ‚Print card number as text under barcode‘ option.

  • Finally you can choose up to two images to print on the card.

    • One can be the patron image which you can resize to meet your needs.

    • The other image can be something like a library logo or symbol that you uploaded using the ‚manage images‘ module of the patron card creator Tool.

    Wichtig

    It is the designers responsibility to define textlines, barcode and images such that overlap is avoided.

After saving, your layouts will appear on the ‚Manage layouts‘ page.

Templates

  • Get there: More > Tools > Patron card creator > Manage > Card templates

A template describes the arrangement of labels on the label sheet/card stock you are using. This might be Avery 5160 for address labels, Gaylord 47-284 for spine labels or Avery 28371 for your patron cards, just to give a couple of examples. All of the information you will need for setting up a template may be on the packaging, and if not it can usually be found on the vendor’s website or can be measured from a sample sheet.

Add a template

To add a new template click on the ‚New template‘ button at the top of your page which brings you to the Edit template form immediately. You may also choose to press ‚Manage templates‘ on the left side. Here you are offered a list of available templates you can select for editing. But in the top of the page there is still the ‚New template‘ button.

image264

Using the form that appears after pressing either ‚Edit‘ or ‚New template‘ you can define the template for your sheet of labels or cards.

image265

  • Template ID is simply a system generated unique id

  • Template code should be the name of this template to identify it on a list of templates

  • You can use the template description to add additional information about the template

  • The Units pull down is used to define what measurement scale you’re going to be using for the template.

    image266

    • Hinweis

      A Postscript Point is 1/72“, an Adobe Agate is 1/64“, an Inch is 25.4 SI Millimeters

  • The measurements (page height, page width, card width, card height) may be on the packaging, and if not it can usually be found on the vendor’s website or can be measured from a sample sheet.

  • A profile is a set of „adjustments“ applied to a given template just prior to printing which compensates for anomalies unique and peculiar to a given printer (to which the profile is assigned).

    • Before defining a profile try printing some sample cards so that you can take measurements to define a profile to perform the right adjustments for your printer/template combination.

    • After finding and documenting any anomalies in the printed document, then you can create a profile and assign it to the template.

    • Wichtig

      Do not specify a profile unless needed, i.e. do not click to define a printer profile. It is not possible to remove a profile from a template but you can switch to another profile.

    • Hinweis

      If you are using different printers you may be required to define several templates that are identical only different profiles are specified.

After saving, your templates will appear on the ‚Manage templates‘ page.

image267

Profile

  • Get there: More > Tools > Patron card creator > Manage > Profiles

A profile is a set of „adjustments“ applied to a given template just prior to printing which compensates for anomalies unique and peculiar to a given printer. This means if you set a template up and then print a sample set of data and find that the items are not all aligned the same on each card, you need to set up a profile for each printer (or even different tray selections on the same printer) to make up for the differences in printing styles, such as the shifting of text to the left, right, top or bottom.

Wenn Ihre Ausweise bereits so gedruckt werden, wie Sie es möchten, benötigen Sie kein Profil.

Add a profile

To add a new profile, you want to click on the ‚Profiles‘ button at the top of your page and choose ‚New profile‘

image268

To add a new profile, you want to click on the ‚New profile‘ button at the top of your page. Using the form that appears you can define the values to correct the card misalignments on your label sheet. You may also choose ‚Manage profiles‘ on the left side and select one of the currently available profiles for editing.

image269

  • The Printer name and Paper bin do not have to match your printer exactly, they are for your reference so you can remember what printer you have set the profile for.

    • Hinweis

      For example: if you want to use the Printer model number in printer name you can, or you can call it ‚the printer on my desk‘

  • Template will be filled in once you have chosen which template to apply the profile to on the template edit form

  • Die Auswahlliste Maße wird verwendet um festzulegen welche Maßeinheit Sie für Ihr Profil verwenden.

    image270

    • Hinweis

      A Postscript Point is 1/72“, an Adobe Agate is 1/64“, an Inch is 25.4 SI Millimeters

  • Offset should be used when the entire image is off center either vertically or horizontally. Creep describes a condition where the distance between the labels changes across the page or up and down the page

    • For offset and creep values, negative numbers move the printed information up and to the left on the printed sheet and positive numbers move down and to the right

    • Example: the text is printed 0 .25“ from the left edge of the first label, 0 .28“ from the left edge of the second label and 0 .31“ from the left edge of the third label. This means the horizontal creep should be set to (minus) -0.03 “ to make up for this difference.

After saving, your profiles will appear on the ‚Manage printer profiles‘ page.

image271

Nachdem Sie Ihr neues Profil gespeichert haben, können Sie zu der LIste der Templates zurückkehren und das Template für dieses Profil bearbeiten.

Koha enthält ein Werkzeug, mit der Sie Ihre bibliographischen Daten, Exemplare und Normdaten im Stapel exportieren können. Das kann verwendet werden um Daten an andere Bibliotheken, Organisationen oder Dienstleister zu schicken; oder einfach für Sicherungen und Backups.

Export bibliographic records

Am oberen Bildschirmrand müssen Sie auswählen, welche Daten exportiert werden. Wenn bibliographische Datensätze mit oder ohne Exemplardaten exportiert werden sollen, muss der entsprechende Reiter ‚Bibliographische Datensätze exportieren‘ ausgewählt werden.

  • Fill in the form in order to limit your export to a specific range (all fields are optional)

    image308

    • Choose to limit your export by any one or more of the following options

      • Begrenzen auf Titelsatznummernbreich

      • Auf einen bestimmten Medientyp einschränken

        • Wichtig

          This limit will use the type you have defined in the item-level_itypes preference. If you have the item-level_itypes preference set to ‚specific item‘ and you have no items attached to a bib record it will not be exported. To get all bib records of a specific type you will need your item-level_itypes preference set to ‚biblio record‘.

      • Auf eine bestimmte Bibliothek oder Bibliotheksgruppe einschränken

        • Wichtig

          This is a filter: if you leave this set to the default (all libraries selected) or select one or more libraries, bib records with no items attached will not be exported. To get bib records with no items you will need to ‚clear all‘ (i.e. de-select all libraries).

      • Auf einen Signaturbereich einschränken

      • Auf einen Erwerbungszeitraum einschränken

    • If you’d like you can load a file of biblionumbers for the records you would like to export. File type needs to be .csv or .txt

      image309

    • Next choose what to skip when exporting

      image310

      • In der Voreinstellung werden auch Exemplardaten exportiert. Wenn Sie nur bibliographische Daten exportieren möchten, setzen Sie das Häkchen bei ‚Exemplardaten nicht exportieren‘

      • To limit your export only to items from the library you’re logged in as (if you leave the ‚Library‘ field set to ‚All‘) or to the library you selected above check the ‚Remove non-local items‘ box

      • Sie können auswählen, welche Felder Sie nicht exportieren möchten. Das kann nützlich sein, wenn Sie Daten mit anderen austauschen möchten. Sie können so alle lokalen Felder entfernen, bevor Sie die Daten an eine andere Bibliothek schicken.

    • Finally choose the file type and file name

      image311

      • Wählen Sie MARC oder MARCXML als Exportformat

      • Geben Sie den Namen an, unter dem Sie die Datei speichern möchten

    • Wählen Sie ‚Bibliographische Daten exportieren‘

Export authority records

Am oberen Bildschirmrand müssen Sie auswählen, welche Daten exportiert werden. Wenn Normdaten exportiert werden sollen, muss der entsprechende Reiter ‚Normdaten exportieren‘ ausgewählt werden.

  • Verwenden Sie die unterschiedlichen Felder des Formulars um den Export auf einen bestimmten Nummernbereich oder Normdatentyp einzuschränken (alle Felder sind optional)

    image312

  • Or you can choose a file of authids to export

image1236

File type needs to be .csv or .txt

  • Next choose fields that you would like to exclude from the export separated by a space (no commas)

    image313

    • Wenn alle Unterfelder von 200 vom Export ausgeschlossen werden sollen, geben Sie 200 an

    • Wenn nur ein bestimmtes Unterfeld nicht exportiert werden soll, kombinieren Sie Feldnummer und Unterfeldkennung, so wird bei 100a nur das Unterfeld a des Feldes 100 vom Export ausgeschlossen

  • Finally choose the file type and file name

Inventur

  • Get there: More > Tools > Catalog > Inventory

Koha’s inventory tool can be used in one of three ways:

  1. By creating a shelf list that you can then mark items off on;

  2. By uploading barcodes gathered by a portable scanner;

  3. By comparing barcodes gathered by a portable scanner or scanned directly to a generated shelf list.

Creating a shelf list

If you do not have the ability to use your barcode scanner on the floor of the library, the option available to you is to generate a shelf list based on criteria you enter. You can then print it to use while walking around the library checking your collection or use it directly in Koha on a portable device.

The inventory form, the sections Item location filters, Optional filters for inventory lists or comparing barcodes, and Additional options

First, choose the criteria for the items you want to print out on a list. All parameters are optional, but if none are selected, the resulting list might be quite large.

  • Library: choose the branch you want to check, as well as if that branch is the home library or the current holding library of the items.

  • Shelving location (items.location) is: you can filter by location.

  • Item callnumber between … and …: you can also limit the list to a specific range of callnumbers.

  • If filtering by callnumber, make sure to choose the correct classification scheme

You can filter even more with item statuses (not for loan status, lost status, withdrawn status or damaged status). Check the boxes next to the statuses you want to include. For example, if you are using the list to shelf read, check only the ‚for loan‘ status as the other items probably won’t be on the shelves.

  • Last inventory date: enter a date here to skip items that have been marked as seen recently.

  • Skip items on loan: check this box to filter out loaned items from the list.

  • Skip items on hold awaiting pickup: check this box to filter out items that are awaiting pickup by patrons

  • Item types: check the boxes next to the item types you want to include in your shelf list

  • Export to CSV file: check this box to generate a CSV file for altering in an application on your desktop. If this box is unchecked, the list will be presented on the screen.

Click on ‚Submit‘ to generate your shelf list.

A table presenting the items corresponding to the filters

Once you have found the items on your shelves, return to this list and check the boxes next to the items you found. Next, click on one of the three buttons to continue:

  • Mark seen and quit: updates the ‚last seen‘ date of the checked items to today and returns to the previous screen.

  • Mark seen and continue: updates the ‚last seen‘ date of the checked items to today and shows the next page of the list.

  • Continue without marking: doesn’t update any of the items on this page and shows the next page of the list.

Uploading barcodes with a scanner

If you have a portable scanner (or a laptop and USB scanner) you can walk through the library with the scanner in hand and scan barcodes as you come across them (on a laptop, scan the barcodes into a text file or directly into the on screen text box). Once finished you can then upload the text file generated by the scanner to Koha.

The inventory form, the sections Use a barcode file, Or scan items one by one, and Parameters

  • Set inventory date to: choose the date you want to mark all items as last seen.

  • Compare barcodes list to results: uncheck for this method.

  • Do not check in item scanned during inventory: unless this is checked, Koha will check in items scanned, as it is assumed that they are on the shelf and so not loaned out. If you do not want to check in scanned items, check this option.

  • Check barcodes list for items shelved out of order: if this option is checked, Koha will compare the call numbers and make sure they are in the correct order.

Click ‚Submit‘. This will update all the items‘ ‚last seen‘ date to the chosen date.

Once you have the updated the last seen date for all items scanned during the inventory it is possible to use reports to identify items that were not scanned and can therefore be assumed missing (you can use the batch item modification tool to change the LOST status of these items). There are sample reports you can use on the Koha SQL Reports Library.

Comparing scanned barcodes to a shelf list

Alternatively, you can combine the two methods to automatically compare a list of scanned barcodes with a generated list.

First, upload you barcode file or scan the barcodes in the box.

  • Set inventory date to: choose the date you want to appear in the items‘ ‚last seen‘ field.

  • Compare barcodes list to results: should automatically be checked.

  • Do not check in items scanned during inventory: make sure to check this option if you do not want the scanned items to be automatically checked-in if they are checked-out.

Choose the filters (library, shelving location, callnumbers, statuses or item types) to generate a list with which to compare your barcodes. Click on ‚Submit‘.

Bemerkung

Depending on the number of barcodes you are comparing, this may take a few minutes. It is not recommended to compare lists of more than 1000 barcodes as this may cause a session timeout.

Once Koha has finished comparing the barcodes file to the generated list, it will return the number of items updated and a list of problematic items.

Bemerkung

Unlike when creating a shelf list, the list that will be presented here will only contain the items that Koha has determined are problematic.

  • Missing (not scanned): the item is in the generated list but not in the barcodes file.

  • Found in wrong place: the item is in the barcodes list, but not in the generated list.

  • Still checked out: the item is checked out, but is in the generated list. It was not automatically checked in.

  • No barcode: the barcode doesn’t exist.

  • Unknown not-for-loan status: the item has ‚not for loan‘ status that is not in the NOT_LOAN authorized values list

  • Item may be shelved out of order: the callnumber is out of order

Label creator

  • Get there: More > Tools > Catalog > Label creator

The label creator tool allows you to use layouts and templates which you design to print a nearly unlimited variety of labels including barcodes. Here are some of the features of the label creator tool:

  • Etiketten-Layouts anpassen

  • Erstellen Sie benutzerdefinierte Templates für den Etikettendruck

  • Etikettenstapel erstellen und verwalten

  • Einen oder mehrere Stapel exportieren

  • Exportieren Sie eine oder mehrere Etiketten aus einem Stapel

  • Export label data in one of three formats:

    • PDF - Readable by any standard PDF reader, making labels printable directly on a printer

    • CSV - Exportieren Sie den Etikettenstapel, nachdem das gewählte Layout angewendet wurde, um ihn in verschiedene andere Anwendungen zu importieren

    • XML - als alternatives Export-Format

Templates

  • Get there: More > Tools > Label creator > Manage > Label templates

A template is based on the label/card stock you are using. This might be Avery 5160 for address labels, Gaylord 47-284 for spine labels or Avery 28371 for your patron cards, just to give a couple of examples. These labels will include all of the information you will need for setting up in Koha. This information may be on the packaging, and if not it can usually be found on the vendor’s website.

Add a template

To add a new template, you want to click on the ‚New‘ button at the top of the label creator page and choosing ‚Label template‘.

image318

Mit der angezeigten Maske können Sie das Template für Ihre Etiketten- oder Ausweisdruckvorlage definieren.

image319

  • ‚Template ID‘ will be automatically generated after saving your template, this is simply a system generated unique id

  • ‚Template code‘ should be something you can use to identify your template on a list of templates

  • You can use the ‚Template description‘ to add additional information about the template

  • The ‚Units‘ pull down is used to define what measurement scale you’re going to be using for the template. This should probably match the unit of measurement used on the template description provided by the product vendor.

    image320

  • The measurements, number of columns and number of rows can be found on the vendor product packaging or website.

    • Page height: height of the page

    • Page width: width of the page

    • Label width: width of the label

      image1485

    • Label height: height of the label

      image1484

    • Top page margin: height between the top of the page and the top of the first row of labels

      image1488

    • Left page margin: width between the left side of the page and the left side of the first column of labels

      image1486

    • Top text margin: height between the top of the label and the top of the first line of text

      image1489

    • Left text margin: width between the left side of the label and the start of the text

      image1487

    • Wichtig

      If you do not supply a left text margin in the template, a 3/16“ (13.5 point) left text margin will apply by default.

    • Number of columns: number of columns of labels in a page, or number of labels per row

    • Number of rows: number of rows of labels in a page, or number of labels per column

    • Gap between columns: width between two columns of labels

      image1482

    • Gap between rows: height between two rows of labels

      image1483

  • A profile is a set of „adjustments“ applied to a given template just prior to printing which compensates for anomalies unique and peculiar to a given printer (to which the profile is assigned).

    • Drucken Sie versuchsweise ein paar Karten, bevor Sie ein Profil auswählen. So können Sie einfacher ein Profil definieren, dass richtig für Ihre Kombination von Drucker und Template ist.

    • After finding any anomalies in the printed document, create a profile and assign it to the template.

After saving, your templates will appear on the ‚Manage‘ area under ‚Label templates‘.

image321

Profile

  • Get there: More > Tools > Label creator > Manage > Printer profiles

A profile is a set of „adjustments“ applied to a given template just prior to printing which compensates for anomalies unique and peculiar to a given printer (to which the profile is assigned). This means if you set a template up and then print a sample set of data and find that the items are not all aligned the same on each label, you need to set up a profile for each printer to make up for the differences in printing styles, such as the shifting of text to the left, right, top or bottom.

Wenn Ihre Etiketten bereits so gedruckt werden, wie Sie es möchten, benötigen Sie kein Profil.

Add a profile

To add a new profile, you want to click on the ‚New‘ button at the top of the label creator tool and choose ‚Printer profile‘.

image322

In der Maske die erscheint können Sie Probleme mit dem Template durch Anlegen eines Profils beheben.

image323

  • The ‚Printer name‘ and ‚Paper bin‘ do not have to match your printer exactly, they are for your reference so you can remember what printer you have set the profile for. So if you want to use the Printer model number in printer name or you can call it ‚the printer on my desk‘

  • ‚Template name‘ will be filled in once you have chosen which template to apply the profile to on the template edit form

  • The ‚Units‘ pull down is used to define what measurement scale you’re going to be using for your profile.

    image320

  • Offset describes what happens when the entire image is off center either vertically or horizontally and creep describes a condition where the distance between the labels changes across the page or up and down the page

    • Bei diesen Werten bewegen negative Werte den Fehler nach oben und links und positive Zahlen bewegen den Fehler nach unden und rechts.

    • Beispiel: der Text ist 6mm von der linken Ecke des ersten Etiketts, 7mm von der der linken Ecke des zweiten Etiketts und 8mm von der linken Ecke des dritten Etiketts entfernt. Das Bedeutet die horizontale Fließdehnung sollte 1mm sein, um die Differenz auszugleichen.

After saving, your profiles will appear on the ‚Manage‘ area under ‚Printer profiles‘.

image325

Nachdem Sie Ihr neues Profil gespeichert haben, können Sie zu der LIste der Templates zurückkehren und das Template für dieses Profil bearbeiten.

Layouts

  • Get there: More > Tools > Label creator > Manage > Layouts

Das Layout wird verwendet um festzulegen welche Felder auf die Etiketten gedruckt werden sollen.

Add a layout

To add a new layout, you want to click on the ‚New‘ button at the top of the Label creator tool and choose ‚Layout‘.

image326

Using the form that appears you can decide what appears on your labels.

image327

  • The name of your layout can be anything you’d like to help you identify it later.

  • If this is a barcode label you’ll want to choose the encoding (Code 39 is the most common)

  • The layout type can be any combination of bibliographic information and/or barcode. For example a spine label would just be Biblio whereas a label for your circulation staff to use to checkout the book would probably be Biblio/Barcode.

    • Biblio: only bibliographic information will appear on the label (e.g. spine labels)

      image1456

    • Barcode/Biblio: the barcode will appear at the top of the label and the bibliographic information undeneath

      image1455

    • Biblio/Barcode: the bibliographic information will appear at the top of the label and the barcode underneath

      image1457

    • Alternating: the bibliographic information will appear on one label, and the barcode on the next label, alternating for each item

      image1453

    • Barcode: only the barcode will appear on the label

      image1454

  • The Bibliographic data to print includes any of the data fields that may be mapped to your MARC frameworks. You can choose from the preset list of fields or you can click on ‚List fields‘ and enter your own data. In ‚List fields‘, you can specify MARC subfields as a 4-character tag-subfield string, for example 254a for the title field. You can also enclose a whitespace-separated list of fields to concatenate on one line in double quotes, for example „099a 099b“ or „itemcallnumber barcode“. The fields available are from the database tables list below. Finally you could add in static text strings in single-quote, for example ‚Some static text here.‘

    • You can use the schema viewer (http://schema.koha-community.org) with the following tables to find field names to use:

      • Currently all fields in the following tables are used: items, biblioitems, biblio, branches

        image328

  • Choose if the label maker should print out the guidelines around each label

  • Choose if you’d like Koha to try to split your call numbers (usually used on spine labels)

    Hinweis

    Call number spltting rules are managed under Administration > Classification sources.

  • Choose your text settings such as alignment, font type and size. You can also italicize the title by checking the ‚Oblique title‘ box.

After saving, your layouts will appear on the ‚Manage layouts‘ page.

image1490

Stapel

  • Get there: More > Tools > Label creator > Manage > Label batches

Batches are made up of the items for which you would like to print labels. Once in this tool you can search for the item records you would like to print out labels for.

Add a batch

Batches can be created in one of two ways. The first is to click the ‚Create label batch‘ link on the ‚Staged MARC management‘ page:

image329

Das andere dient dazu, vom Werkzeug Etiketten-Hersteller aus die Erschaffung eines neunen Stapels zu wählen

image330

You will be brought to an empty batch with a box to scan barcodes or itemnumbers in to and an ‚Add item(s)‘ button at the bottom of the page.

image331

You can either scan barcodes in to the box provided and click the ‚Add item(s)‘ button or you can click the ‚Add item(s)‘ button with the barcodes box empty. Clicking ‚Add item(s)‘ with nothing in the barcodes box will open a search window for you to find the items you want to add to the batch.

image332

In der Trefferliste können Sie über die Checkboxen neben den Einzeltreffern auswälen, welche Exemplare zu einem Stapel hinzugefügt werden sollen. Klicken Sie hierzu auf ‚Markierte hinzufügen‘. Sie können auch einzelne Exemplare nacheinander über den Link ‚Hinzufügen‘ neben den einzelnen Einträgen hinzufügen.

image333

Once you have added all of the items click the ‚Done‘ button. Click again on the ‚Add item(s)‘ button to transfer the items from the barcode box to the batch. The resulting page will list the items you have selected.

image334

To print your labels, click the ‚Export full batch‘ button. To print only some of the labels, click the ‚Export selected item(s)‘ button. Either way you will be presented with a confirmation screen where you can choose your template and layout. If you’re using a sheet of labels that is not complete, you can enter the starting label (labels are counted horizontally).

image335

Sie können aus drei Download-Optionen wählen: PDF, Excel und CSV.

image336

After saving your file, simply print on the blank labels you have in your library.

Barcode range

  • Get there: More > Tools > Label creator > New > Barcode range

If you want to print your barcode labels in advance, before even cataloging the items, you can choose to add a batch of a range of barcodes.

Click ‚New‘ and choose ‚Barcode range‘ from the label creator tool.

image1491

Enter the starting and ending barcodes.

Hinweis

The barcode range tool does not accept leading zeroes. If you enter 0001234 the barcode that will be printed will be 1234.

image1492

Click ‚Print range‘.

You will be presented with the confirmation screen where you can choose your template and layout and enter the starting label if using an incomplete sheet of labels.

image335

The only download option for barcode ranges is PDF.

Save the file and print it on a blank sheet of labels.

Quick spine label creator

  • Get there: More > Tools > Catalog > Quick spine label creator

    Hinweis

    This tool does not use the label layouts or templates, it simply prints a spine label in the first spot on the label sheet.

    • Define the fields you want to print on the spine label in the SpineLabelFormat system preference

    • Format your label printing by editing spinelabel.css found in koha-tmpl/intranet-tmpl/prog/en/css/

Um diese Funktion zu nutzen benötigen Sie lediglich den Barcode des Buches, für das ein Rückenschild gedruckt werden soll.

image337

Rotating collections

  • Get there: More > Tools > Catalog > Rotating collections

Rotating collections is a tool for managing collections of materials that frequently get shifted from library to library. It adds the ability to store not only an item’s home library and current location but also information about where it is supposed to be transferred to next to ensure that all items in the collection are sent to the correct library. When an item in a rotating collection is checked in, library staff is notified that the item is part of a rotating collection and which branch it should be sent to if it is not at the correct one.

Wichtig

The AutomaticItemReturn system preference must be set to „Don’t automatically transfer items to their home library when they are returned“ for rotating collections to function properly.

  • To create a new rotating collection, click the „New collection“ button, fill in the title and description, and click „Submit“. Once submitted you’ll see „Collection name added successfully“; click „Return to rotating collections home“ to return to the main Rotating collections management page (or click Rotating collections in the sidebar).

  • To add items to a collection, click „Actions“ and choose „Add or remove items“ next to the collection’s name in the list of collections. Under „Add or remove items“ scan or type in the barcode of the item you wish to add to the collection, and hit enter or click ‚Submit‘ if necessary.

  • To remove an item from a collection, either click ‚Remove‘ next to the item’s barcode in the list of items within the collection or check the „Remove item from collection“ box next to the Barcode text box under „Add or remove items“, and scan or type in the barcode, clicking „Submit“ or hitting Enter if necessary. Note: The „Remove item from collection“ checkbox will remain checked as long as you are on the „Add or remove items“ page, unless you uncheck it, to facilitate quickly removing a number of items at a time by scanning their barcodes.

Transfer a rotating collection

Der Transfer einer Sammlung löst Folgendes aus:

  • Aktuellen Standort der Exemplare auf Zielbibliothek des Transfers setzen

  • Einen Transfer von der Standort- zur Zielbibliothek auslösen. Wenn eine Bibliothek eine Sammlung empfängt muss sie für alle Exemplare eine „Rückgabe“ ausführen um den Transfer abzuschliessen.

Es gibt zwei Methoden um Sammlungen zu transferieren:

  • From the main Rotating collections page, click on „Actions“ and choose „Transfer“ next to the title of the collection you wish to transfer; choose the library you wish to transfer the collection to and click „Transfer collection“.

  • Or, from the „add or remove items“ page for a collection, you can click the „Transfer“ button, choose the library you wish to transfer the collection to and click „Transfer Collection“.

    Wichtig

    Um den Transfer abzuschliessen, muss die Zielbibliothek beim Empfang der Sammlung für alle Exemplare eine „Rückgabe“ ausführen. Dies wird den Status „Unterwegs“ zurücksetzen.

Wenn ein Exemplar bei einer anderen Bibliothek als dem aktuellen Standort der Sammlung zurückgegeben wird, erscheint ein entsprechender Hinweis mit der Aufforderung, das Exemplar an die aktuelle Standortbibliothek der Sammlung zu senden.

Stock rotation

Stock rotation helps to spread resources more fairly amongst library branches and allows patrons to see a wider range of titles.

Items are popular whilst they are new at a particular branch. However, their use often tails off over time. This tool empowers librarians to automate the movement of items on to another branch before usage declines and thereby extends the items useful life.

Library staff create rotation plans and then assign them to items. A cronjob is then used to cycle these items round the specified libraries on the rotation plan, moving them to the next stage after the prescribed period of time has passed at the current stage.

Email notices may be used to provide the library branches with a list of items to be put in-transit to the next branch and if an item is found to be on loan at the time that it should be transfered then an alert will be displayed when it is next returned.

From the stock rotation tool page you can add new rotation plans and see a summary of your currently configured rotation plans. You can then edit plan details, activate and deactivate plans and manage stages and items on a given rotation plan.

image1381

Hinweis

  • You can customize the columns of this table in the ‚Table settings‘ section of the Administration module (table id: stock_rotation).

This tool utilises a cron job that must be configured to run on a daily basis.

Editing rota details

image1382

Name: A clear name or code to identify the rota

Cyclical: Denotes whether items remain (No) at the last library on the rotation plan upon reaching the end of the rota or whether they continue (Yes) to rotate, returning back to the first library on the rotation plan once they have completed their alloted time at the last library, indefinitely until manually removed from the rota.

Active: Denotes whether a rota is active and as such whether items on it are rotating. It also governs whether items may be added to and removed from the rota. A rota may be switched between active and inactive at any time allowing for rota maintanence.

Description: One may optionally add an expanded description of the rota for display in summary views.

Managing rota stages

image1383

Stages may be edited, added, removed and re-ordered at any time from this page.

Library: The library the item will be at during this stage

Duration: The amount of time the item should stage at this stage

Managing rota items - Tool view

image1384

Hinweis

  • You can customize the columns of this table in the ‚Table settings‘ section of the Administration module (table id: stock_rotation_manage_items).

Items can be added to a rota individually (by barcode) or in bulk (via the upload of a line delimited barcode file) on this page.

You will also be presented with a summary of all items on the rota with their current location and you have the options to immediately progress items, mark items as ‚in demand‘ and remove an item from rotation.

In demand: If an item is marked as ‚in demand‘ then the duration the item will stay at it’s current stage will be doubled compared to what is set in the rota. This is often used for items that are found to be unexpectedly popular at a particular library.

Managing rota items - Catalog view

image1385

Rotating items may also be managed from the catalog view: When stock rotation is enabled a new menu tab ‚Rota‘ will appear on a catalog records detail view.

All attached items will appear in the summary view with their current status in relation to rotas and the option to mark items as ‚in demand‘ or immediately progress them. You can also remove items from rotation and add items to rotas here too.

Managing rota items - EDI

Items can be automatically added to rotas at aquisition time by using the LRP (Library Rotation Plan) field in EDI.

Managing rotation notices

Stock rotation can send email notices to branch libraries to aid in selecting the items due for rotation. Branch ‚Reply-to‘ addresses will be used in preference to ‚Email‘ addresses for the notice recipients.

The contents of the notices can be customised in the normal manor through the notices tool and the relevant notice has the code SR_SLIP.

Permissions

The stock rotation tool uses two distinct permissions:

manage_rotas:

this governs a users ability to create, update and delete a rota.

manate_rota_items:

this governs a users ability to add, remove and progress items on a rota.

Templates für MARC-Modifikationen

The MARC modification templates system gives Koha users the power to make alterations to MARC records automatically while staging MARC records for import or making batch record modifications.

Dieses Werkzeug erlaubt es, MARC-Datensätze aus unterschiedlichen Quellen an Ihr MARC-Framework anzupassen. Dazu wird ein einfaches Skript mit den Aktionen ‚Copy‘, ‚Move‘, ‚Add‘, ‚Update‘ und ‚Delete fields‘ eingesetzt.

List of currently available MARC modification templates

Click on ‚New template‘ (a template can be made up of one or more actions), enter a name and click ‚Submit‘. Optionally, you can decide to copy an existing template by choosing the template to copy in the ‚Duplicate a template‘ drop-down menu.

Form for creating a new template

Next you can add actions to the template. Click on ‚New action‘. A ‚Add a new action‘ box will appear that you can use to specify what exactly you want to do. For example if you’re loading in a batch of files from your EBook vendor you might want to add the biblio item type of EBOOK to the 942$c.

Add a new action box where the following values are chosen: Add new field(s) 942 c with value EBOOK Description: Add the biblio itemtype

  • Choose ‚Add new‘

  • Erfassen Sie Feld 942 und Subfeld c

  • Den Wert für ‚EBOOK‘ (bzw. den von Ihnen festgelegten Code für E-Books) eingeben

  • Geben Sie eine Beschreibung zur späteren Identifikation dieser Aktion ein.

  • Klicken Sie auf ‚Neue Aktion‘

    Hinweis

    If you wish to update the values in an existing field choose the option ‘Update existing or add new’. This will update existing values where found and add a new field if one doesn’t exist.

Jede Aktion kann eine zusätzliche Prüfung enthalten, ob ein anderes Feld existiert. Zum Beispiel könnten Sie ein bestimmtes Feld nur kopieren wollen, wenn es noch nicht existiert.

Add a new action form with the following options: Copy first field 090 a to field 952 o if field 952 o doesn't exist Description: Move call number to item record if there isn't one there already

  • Wählen Sie „Kopieren“

  • Decide if you want to copy the first occurrence or all occurrence of the field

  • Enter the field 090 (or other bibliographic call number field) and subfield a to copy

  • Erfassen Sie Feld 952 und Subfeld o zum Kopieren nach

  • Wählen Sie ‚if‘

  • Erfassen Sie Feld 952 und Subfeld o

  • Wählen Sie „Existiert nicht“

  • Geben Sie eine Beschreibung zur späteren Identifikation dieser Aktion ein.

  • Klicken Sie auf ‚Neue Aktion‘

The Copy & Move actions also support regular expressions, which can be used to automatically modify field values during the copy/move. An example would be to strip out the ‚$‘ character in field 020$c.

Add a new action form with the following options: Copy and replace every field 020 c to field 020 c RegEx s/\$// if field 020 c matches m/^\$// RegEx Description: Remove $ (dollar sign) from 020$c fields

  • Choose ‚Copy and replace‘

  • Entscheiden Sie, ob Sie nur das erste auftretende oder alle Felder kopieren wollen.

  • Erfassen Sie Feld 020 und Subfeld c zum Kopieren

  • Erfassen Sie Feld 020 und Subfeld c zum Kopieren nach

  • Check the ‚RegEx‘ box and enter your regular expression (in this case s/\$// )

  • Wählen Sie ‚if‘

  • Erfassen Sie Feld 020 und Subfeld c

  • Wählen Sie „Übereinstimmung“

  • Check the ‚RegEx‘ box and enter your regular expression (in this case m/^\$/ )

  • Geben Sie eine Beschreibung zur späteren Identifikation dieser Aktion ein.

  • Klicken Sie auf ‚Neue Aktion‘

    Hinweis

    The value for an update can include variables that change each time the template is used. Currently, the system supports two variables, __BRANCHCODE__ which is replaced with the branchcode of the library currently using the template, and __CURRENTDATE__ which is replaced with the current date in ISO format ( YYYY-MM-DD ).

You could also use regular expressions to add your library’s proxy URL in front of links in your MARC record.

Add a new action form with the following options: Copy and replace all fields 856 u to field 856 u RegEx s/^/http://proxy=/ Description: Add proxy URL

  • Choose ‚Copy and replace‘

  • Entscheiden Sie, ob Sie nur das erste auftretende oder alle Felder kopieren wollen.

  • Enter the field 856 and subfield u to copy

  • Enter the 856 field and u subfield to copy to

  • Check the ‚RegEx‘ box and enter your regular expression (in this case s/^/PROXY_URL/ )

  • Geben Sie eine Beschreibung zur späteren Identifikation dieser Aktion ein.

  • Klicken Sie auf ‚Neue Aktion‘

When choosing between ‚Copy‘ and ‚Copy and replace‘ keep the following example in mind:

245 _aThe art of computer programming _cDonald E. Knuth.
300 _aA_exists _bB_exists

If we apply action (a) Copy the whole field 245 to 300, we get:

245 _aThe art of computer programming _cDonald E. Knuth.
300 _aA_exists _bB_exists
300 _aThe art of computer programming _cDonald E. Knuth.

If we apply action (b) Copy the subfield 245$a to 300$a, we get:

245 _aThe art of computer programming _cDonald E. Knuth.
300 _aThe art of computer programming _bB_exists

Sobald die Aktionen gespeichert sind, erscheinen diese im oberen Bildschrimbereich. Die Aktionen können mit den Pfeilen neu angeordnet werden.

List of all actions in a template

Actions will be done in the order they appear. Depending on your actions the order may be very important. For example you don’t want to delete a field before you copy it to another field. You can use the blue arrows to move actions up or down the list.

  • The up arrow will move the action up one position

  • The up arrow with a line at the top will move the action to the first position

  • The down arrow with a line at the bottom will move the action to the last position

  • The down arrow will move the action down one position

Once your template is saved you will be able to pick it when using the Stage MARC records for import tool or when using the batch record modification tool.

Modify the record using the following template drop-down menu where the option Add Ebook item is being selected

Stage MARC records for import

  • Get there: More > Tools > Catalog > Stage MARC records for import

Dieses Werkzeug kann für den Import von Titel- und Normdaten im MARC-Format verwendet werden. Der Import erfolgt dabei immer in zwei Schritten. Der erste Schritt ist das Zwischenspeichern der Datensätze für den Import.

  • Wählen Sie zunächst die MARC-Datei auf Ihrem Computer aus

    image344

  • Next you will be presented with options for record matching and item imports

    image345

    • ‚Comments about this file‘: enter comments to identify your upload when going to the ‚Manage staged MARC records‘ tool

    • ‚Record type‘: tell Koha which type of file this is, bibliographic or authority

      image346

    • ‚Character encoding‘: choose the character encoding of your file

      image347

    • ‚Format‘: choose the MARC format of your file

      image1493

    • ‚Modify record using the following template‘: choose if you would like to use a MARC modification template to alter the data you’re about to import

      image348

    • Choose whether or not you want to look for matching records

      image349

      • ‚Record matching rule‘: choose which rules to use to check your catalog if these records already exist.

        Hinweis

        You can set up record matching rules in the administration area

        image350

        • When using the ISBN matching rule Koha will find only exact matches. If you find that the ISBN match is not working to your satisfaction you can change the AggressiveMatchOnISBN preference to ‚Do‘ and then run your import again.

    • ‚Action if matching record found‘: choose what to do with matching records if they are found

      • Replace existing record with incoming record: choose this if you are importing more complete records than the ones you currently have, or if you made some changes using an external tool (MarcEdit for example)

      • Add incoming record: this will keep the existing record and add the incoming record, so you may end up with duplicates

      • Ignore incoming record (its items may still be processed): choose this if you do not want to replace existing records

    • ‚Action if no match is found‘: choose what to do with records that are unique

      • Add incoming record: choose this if you wish to import records that are not already in your catalog (for example, for new titles)

      • Ignore incoming record: choose this if you don’t want to import records that are not already in your catalogue (for example, if you’re only replacing existing records and don’t want to add anything)

    • ‚Check for embedded item record data?‘: choose whether or not to import the item data (field 952) found in the MARC records (if the file you’re loading is a bibliographic file)

      image351

      • Always add items: always add items regardless of matching status

      • Add items only if matching bib was found: this will only add items to existing records in your catalog

      • Add items only if no matching bib was found: this will only add items to the new records you’re importing, not the ones that already exist

      • Replace items if a matching bib was found: the match will look at the itemnumbers and barcodes to match on for items and will only replace existing items.

        Hinweis

        Itemnumbers take precendence over barcodes

      • Ignore items: this will not add any items

  • Klicken Sie auf ‚Zum Import bereitstellen‘

  • Sie werden gebeten, den MARC-Import zu bestätigen

    image352

  • To complete the process continue to the Manage staged MARC records tool by clicking on the ‚Manage staged records‘ button.

Staged MARC record management

  • Get there: More > Tools > Catalog > Staged MARC record management

Once you have staged your records for import you can complete the import using this tool.

image353

  • From the list of staged records, click on the file name that you want to finish importing

    • Sie sehen, dass Ihnen der Status zeigt, welche Datensätze bereits importiert wurden

  • Es wird eine Zusammenfassung Ihres Imports angezeigt und die Möglichkeit angeboten die Abgleichregeln anzupassen

    image354

  • Below the summary is the option to import the batch of records using a specific framework

Upload local cover image

  • Get there: More > Tools > Catalog > Upload local cover image

This tool allows you to upload cover images for the materials in your catalog.

To access this tool staff need the upload_local_cover_images permission.

For images to show in the staff client and OPAC you need to set LocalCoverImages and OPACLocalCoverImages preferences to ‚Display‘.

Images can be uploaded in batches or individually.

Notes

Koha does not have a maximum file size limit for this tool, but the webserver (such as Apache) may limit the maximum size of uploads (talk to your system administrator).

Where there are multiple images for a record they will display left to right (then top to bottom, depending on screen size) in the order they were uploaded. The image on the left (the first one uploaded) is used as a thumbnail cover in search results and on the details page. There is no way to reorder cover images uploaded in this way, so be sure to upload them in the order you’d like them to appear.

image1239

To upload a single image:

  • Go to the tool, click the ‚Browse‘ button, and find the image on your local machine.

    image363

  • Click ‚Upload file‘.

  • Choose ‚Image file‘ under the ‚File type‘ section.

  • Geben Sie die Titelsatznummer (biblionumber) des Datensatzes an, mit der das Bild verknüpft werden soll. Es ist nicht der Barcode, sondern die Nummer, die durch Koha für den Datensatz generiert wurde.

    • Find the biblionumber by looking at the end of the URL in the address bar when on the details page

      image364

    • or by clicking on the MARC tab on the details page in the staff client.

      image365

  • If you would like to replace any other cover images you may have uploaded in the past, check the ‚Replace existing covers‘ box under the ‚Options‘ section.

  • Click ‚Process images‘.

  • You are presented with a summary of the upload and a link to the record you have just added the image to.

To upload a batch of images:

  • Create a folder with the images to upload in it.

  • Create a text file (*.txt) named either datalink.txt or idlink.txt listing the biblionumber followed by the image name for each image, one per line.

    • For example: 4091,image4091.jpg

      image366

  • Create a ZIP file that includes all the images to upload and the text file.

  • Go to the tool, click the ‚Browse‘ button, and browse to the ZIP file on your computer.

  • Click ‚Upload file‘.

  • Whäen Sie ‚ZIP-Datei‘ aus der Auswahlliste ‚Dateityp‘

  • If you would like to replace any other cover images you may have uploaded in the past, check the ‚Replace existing covers‘ box under the ‚Options‘ section.

  • ‚Bilder verarbeiten‘ anklicken

  • You are presented with a summary of the upload.

    image367

    Wichtig

    The source image is used to generate a 140 x 200 px thumbnail image and a 600 x 800 px full-size image. The original sized image uploaded is not kept by Koha.

In the staff client the cover images appear on the details page under the ‚Images‘ tab in the holdings table at the bottom.

image368

In the OPAC the cover images appear in the ‚Images‘ tab, as well as next to the title and on the search results.

To remove a cover image click ‚Delete image‘ below the image in the staff client if you have the upload_local_cover_images permission.

Adding events

Before adding events, choose the library you would like to apply the closings to. When adding events you will be asked if you would like to apply the event to one branch or all branches. To add events, simply

  • Klicken Sie auf das Datum im Kalender, an dem Sie den Schließtag eintragen möchten

    Add new holiday form

  • In the form that appears above the calendar, enter the closing information (for more info on each option click the question mark [?] to the right of the option)

    • Die Bibliothek wird automatisch ausgefüllt, abhängig von der Bibliothek, die Sie am Anfang der Seite aus der Auswahlliste gewählt haben.

    • Der Wochentag wird ebenfalls automatisch ausgefüllt, basierend auf dem Datum, dass Sie im Kalender angeklickt haben.

      • If this holiday extends on more than one day, enter the end date in ‚To date‘

    • In the ‚title‘ enter the name of the holiday or the reason for the closing

    • In the ‚description‘ enter more information about this holiday

    • Next you can choose if this event is a one time event or if it is repeatable.

      • ‚Holiday only on this day‘: this is a one day holiday

      • ‚Holiday repeated every same day of the week‘: this is a weekly closing (if you’re closed every Sunday, for example)

      • ‚Holiday repeated yearly on the same date‘: this is an annual holiday closing (if you’re closed on January 1st each year, for example)

      • ‚Holiday on a range‘: this is a holiday that extends on several days

        Hinweis

        Make sure to enter a ‚To Date‘ at the top if you choose ‚Holiday on a range‘

      • ‚Holiday repeated yearly on a range‘: this is a holiday that extends on several days each year (such as summer holidays for schools)

        Hinweis

        Make sure to enter a ‚To Date‘ at the top if you choose ‚Holiday repeated yearly on a range‘

    • Finally decide if this event should be applied to all libraries or just the one you have originally selected

      • If you’d rather enter all the holidays and then copy them all to another branch all at once you can use the copy menu below the calendar

        Drop down menu of all libraries from which to choose to which library to copy the holidays

  • Nach dem Speichern wird der Schließtag auf der rechten Seite des Kalenders angezeigt

    View of the calendar page showing the calendar and all the programmed holidays

Editing events

Schließtage bearbeiten

  • Klicken Sie auf den Schließtag im Kalender, den Sie ändern möchten (klicken Sie dabei auf das Datum im Kalender, nicht auf den Schließtag in der Zusammenfassung)

    Edit holiday form

  • From this form you can make edits to the holiday or delete the holiday completely.

    • All actions require that you click ‚Save‘ before the change will be made.

  • Clicking on repeatable events will offer slightly different options

    Edit holiday form with the option of generating exceptions for repeating holidays

    • In the form above you will note that there is now an option to ‚Generate an exception for this repeated holiday‘ and ‚Generate exceptions on a range of dates‘ choosing one of these options will allow you to make it so that this date is not closed even though the library is usually closed on this date.

    • All actions require that you click ‚Save‘ before the change will be made.

Additional help

Wenn Sie Schließtage hinzufügen erhalten Sie zusätzliche Hilfestellung, indem Sie auf das Fragezeichen neben der jeweiligen Option klicken, um zusätzliche Hinweise zu erhalten

Text under "Delete this holiday": "This will delete this holiday rule. If it is a repeatable holiday, this option checks for possible exceptions. If an exception exists, this option will remove the exception and set the date to a regular holiday."

CSV profiles

  • Get there: More > Tools > Additional tools > CSV profiles

CSV profiles are created to define how you would like your cart or list to export.

Add CSV profiles

To add a CSV profile

  • Click on ‚New CSV profile‘

    Add new CSV profile form

    • Der ‚Profilname‘ wird in der Auswahlliste angezeigt, wenn Sie im Korb oder in einer Liste ‚Download‘ auswählen

      View of the cart with the Download pull down menu open and "CSV - Record export" is selected

    • The ‚Profile type‘ determines what type of fields you plan to use (MARC or SQL) to define your profile

      • If you choose MARC then you will need to enter MARC fields

        Add new CSV profile form filled with MARC information

      • If you choose SQL then you will need to enter SQL database fields

        Add new CSV profile form filled with SQL information

    • The ‚Usage‘ field is used to indicate what type of report this CSV profile is used with

    • The ‚Profile description‘ is for your own benefit, but will also appear in the OPAC when patrons download content, so make sure it’s clear for your patrons as well

    • Das ‚CSV-Trennzeichen‘ ist das Zeichen, das verwendet wird um Werte und Wertegruppen voneinander zu trennen

      Hinweis

      Die am häufigsten verwendete Option an dieser Stelle ist das Komma, da die meisten Tabellenverarbeitungsprogramme Dateien mit kommagetrennten Werten öffnen können.

    • The ‚Field separator‘ is the character used to separate duplicate fields

      • Beispiel: Wenn mehrere 650-Felder vorhanden sind, wird dieses Zeichen als Trennzeichen zwischen den einzelnen Feldern verwendet

        CSV file opened in a spreadsheet software where we can see the pipes separating subject headings when there are more than one

    • The ‚Subfield separator‘ is the character used to separate duplicate subfields

      • Beispiel: Sie können mehrere Unterfelder $a in einem Feld haben

    • Unter ‚Zeichensatz‘ können Sie den für Ihre Datei verwendeten Zeichensatz auswählen

    • The ‚Only available on the staff interface‘ checkbox (only for MARC profile types) lets you limit this CSV profile to staff interface only, meaning patrons will not be able to use this profile to export their cart or lists from the OPAC

    • Finally format your CSV file using the ‚Profile MARC fields‘ or ‚Profile SQL fields‘ box

      • Define which fields or subfields you want to export, separated by pipes. Example : 200|210$a|301 for MARC or biblio.title|biblio.author for SQL

      • Hinweis

        You can also use your own headers (instead of the ones from Koha) by prefixing the field number with a header, followed by the equal sign. Example: Personal name=100|title=245$a|300

When you have entered in all of the information for your profile, simply click ‚Submit‘ and you will be presented with a confirmation that your profile has been saved.

Blue box with the confirmation message "CSV profile added successfully."
