I have installed Koha on 3.0 and I am ready to import my records (again) and
would like some advice on the best practice of mapping my data. I have the
title listed under 245$a and the media type under 245$h.  Here is a sample
of the items we carry in our library. Our library consists of Video
Cassettes and audio books.

Last time I imported the data, only the description is visible. I ended up
deleting the Koha database and so I can start with a fresh database. I would
like to use the mapping tool in Koha, but if I need to use MarcEdit to
change the tag numbers please let me know. I just want to make sure that I
am using the tools correctly. 


Has anyone had the same experience of importing similar data into Koha and
if you have a detailed description of the best practice for this procedure. 


Thank you in advanced and for your patience with my limited knowledge of the
Koha Software.
