Koha in the stable version (3.2.3 now) has a very basic support for this
catalouging workflow.
You need to:
a)Use the standard subfield tecnique (no embedded fields)
b)Insert the subfields $t [title] and $0 [id of record].

Amit Gupta, Savitra Sirohi and I we are working os support of
a tool to make easy the analytical records linking (the reverse of your
situation, a father/host record with items, sons without items).

Jared Camins amd Katrin Fisher are working on an other solution for

So the summary:
a)Now you need to do all by hand and probably the support is not perfect.
b)We are working on a better solution.
