[Koha] Koha Location Mapping

Hello all,

About a year ago, I installed Koha 2.2.7 and converted from a pseudo-UNIMARC database to MARC21. Now I am going to upgrade to 2.2.9 and I am rechecking everything. I have always had problems with my location information, and now I think I have discovered why. This may have been mentioned elsewhere on the list.

I used the default MARC format and followed the instructions in http://www.kohadocs.org/holdings.html for the mapping. Only now have I noticed that these instructions in "3. MARC 21 to Koha Holdings Mappings" do not follow the default framework (at least in my catalog). For example, it says: Map 541 $d; or 876 $d, 877 $d, and 878 $d  to  952 $d for items.dateaccessioned
but 952 $d in my default MARC format is holding branch. 952 $v is dateacessioned.

and Map 852 $c, 856 $u, 876 $l, 877 $l, and 878 $l  to  952 $c for items.location.
when there is no 952 $c in the default (there is in 2.2.9)

There may be other discrepancies as well. So, I suggest that people look very carefully at this document and compare it to the actual settings when they are their mapping.
