Hello Bruck,

This query (UPDATE items SET homebranch='LIB', holdingbranch='LIB') )  is
very dangerous.

This will set all (homebranch  and holdingbranch )  in your items table to
be LIB for all items!

if that is not what you want, then try to retrieve a backup from (
/var/spool/koha ) or anywhere else you store your backups .

Please note that LIB should be one of your branches custom code. so are you
sure it is LIB in your Koha installation ?
