There is a plugin in UNIMARC Koha which can help you: unimarc_field_4XX.pl

You have to modify you default framework. Add this plugin to 461$a for
example. This plugin will allow you to search for serial or monograph
host title. Then the biblio record ID (biblionumber) is copied into
461$9 and also descriptive fields into the appropriate 461 sufields.

You have a sample here:


You can see a link to the 'mother' biblio record. It works also from
mother bilio to each related records (each volume in your example).
