Yes, that's also a possibility, but I'm trying to keep the initial implementation as simple as possible, so it doesn't currently include any changes to holds or circulation. It's a good candidate for future development.

This sounds great. I'm assuming this would allow us to do things like group 
multiple copies of the same issue of a magazine.

Ere, or someone else, are you able to advise whether this includes any holds 
functionality changes? i.e. if we have:

Bib record
   - Holdings record 1
     - item record A
     - item record B
   - Holdings record 2
     - item record C
     - item record D

We would want to be able to 'place hold on first available item on this 
Holding', rather than first available on Bib/Title, or forcing item-level 
holds. i.e. I want to place a hold on Holdings Record 1, and either of item A 
or item B would satisfy my hold, but item C or item D would not.

This may also necessitate changes to the circulation rules section of

Hi Katrin,

Thanks for the comments. I'll try to clarify the RFC.

Hi Ere,

thx for your work on that! I've added some comments and questions at
the bottom of the RFC page. I think key is to break the big
development down into multiple steps that can be easily tested.

Hi Everyone,

I've written an RFC for adding support for MARC holdings records,
available here:
I'd be grateful for any feedback on this. I know there have been
some initiatives to add (back) holdings records, but this proposal
is a bit different in that it relies on the MARC format and I
already have it working in a local custom branch apart from OPAC support.
