Dear All, 

I am migrating my data from oracle database to KOHA. 
I would like to use 
the 942$c to store document types such as handbooks, dictionary etc (I will not create any circulation rules for these values) 
and 952$y for koha item type used for circulation rules. 

I intend to edit the MARC framework and update the authorized value of 942$c to a new created authorized value such as DTYPE. 

However KOHA links this field to biblioitems.itemtype. 
I wanted to understand how and where is this field used in KOHA functions. 
Will this cause any malfunctioning with respect to lending or any other functions. 

With best regards,
