00:01 Welcome to the spoken tutorial on Create a MARC Framework.
00:07 In this tutorial, we will learn to create a MARC Framework in Koha.
00:14 To record this tutorial, I am using:

Ubuntu Linux Operating System 16.04 and Koha version 16.05

00:27 To follow this tutorial, you should have knowledge of Library Science.
00:33 To practice this tutorial, you should have Koha installed on your system.

And, you should also have Admin access in Koha.

00:44 If not, please refer to the Koha spoken tutorial series on this website.
00:50 Before we begin, note that- Frameworks can be edited or deleted.
00:57 Superlibrarian can create their own frameworks, as per the requirement of their libraries.
01:05 Let us begin. Let me switch to the 'Koha' interface.
01:11 Login with Superlibrarian username Bella and her password.
01:17 Now we are inside the Koha interface as Superlibrarian Bella.
01:25 Go to Koha administration.
01:29 Under the section Catalog, click on MARC bibliographic framework.
01:36 A new page opens.
01:40 Click on plus New framework.
01:44 Another page opens up, prompting us to fill in the details-

Framework code: and Description:

01:54 In the field for Framework code, I will type BK.
02:01 For Description:, I will type BOOKS.
02:06 Next, click on Submit button at the bottom.
02:11 On the new page that opens, go to the Code BK i.e. BOOKS.
02:18 From the tab Actions, click on MARC structure.
02:25 A new page MARC Framework for BOOKS (BK) opens up.

Under this title, click on the OK button here.

02:35 Another page with the same title MARC Framework for BOOKS (BK) opens.
02:40 This shows tags from 1 to 20 of 342 tags.
02:48 However, you may see more number of tags on your screen.
02:53 Note that there are a total of 342 default tags.

I will select only a few tags for Books.

You may choose tags as per your requirement.

03:08 Notice here that there are options to Edit or Delete a tag.
03:14 I will demonstrate how to Delete.
03:17 I will choose the tag number 010- Library of Congress Control Number.
03:25 Upon clicking the Delete tab at the extreme right side, a pop-up window appears asking-

“Confirm deletion of tag '010'?”

03:40 Click on Yes, delete this tag.
03:44 Another window appears with the message ‘Tag deleted’. Click Ok.
03:51 The same page MARC Framework for Books (BK) appears again.
03:56 On this page, ‘Tag’ number 010 will no longer be shown.
04:03 Similarly, delete any other tags which may not be relevant to a particular item type.
04:11 To edit the tags, go to Actions and choose the Edit option.
04:17 I will go for tag number 000, Leader.
04:24 Then click on Edit.
04:27 The following fields are filled by default, by Koha itself-

Label for lib: , Label for opac:.

04:38 Note that: The 'Label for lib' will show up in the staff client.

The 'Label for OPAC' will show up on the MARC view, in the OPAC.

04:50 As per your requirement, check the check-box for Repeatable:
04:56 Koha will, by default, check the check-box for Mandatory.
05:02 I will check the check-box for Repeatable:.
05:06 Note that if you click Repeatable' then the field will have a plus sign next to it, in Cataloging.
05:16 This is basically required for more than 3 authors or editors, allowing you to add many more details of the same tag.
05:27 If 'Mandatory' is clicked or auto-selected by Koha then the record will not be allowed to save, unless you allocate a value to this particular tag.
05:43 Let’s go back to the Koha interface.
05:46 After filling in all the details, click on Save changes.
05:52 In the new page that opens up, note that for tag number 000, Leader: Repeatable and Mandatory will appear as Yes.
06:05 Next, let us learn how to enable Authority file.
06:10 Go to Koha Administration.
06:13 And click on Global system preferences.
06:18 Acquisitions preferences page opens.
06:23 From the list of tabs on the left side, click on Authorities.
06:30 Under the section General, start changing the Value of Preference as follows:
06:37 For AuthDisplayHierarchy, select Display from the drop-down.
06:44 For AutoCreateAuthorities, select generate.
06:50 For BiblioAddsAuthorities, select allow.

For dontmerge, select Do.

07:01 Leave-MARCAuthorityControlField008 and UNIMARCAuthorityField100 as it is.
07:11 For UseAuthoritiesForTracings, Koha, by default, selects Use.
07:19 Under the section Linker, default values should be retained for- CatalogModuleRelink,
07:28 LinkerKeepStale, LinkerModule,
07:33 LinkerOptions and LinkerRelink.
07:38 Now, click on Save all Authorities preferences.
07:43 You may now log out from the Superlibrarian account of Koha.
07:48 To do so, go to the top right corner.
07:52 Click on Spoken Tutorial Library and from the drop-down, select Log out.
07:59 This completes all the setup required for MARC Framework.
