Not directly in Koha for the time being. Staged  MARC records (in Koha 
tools) has to be improved in this area. A hook procedure could be 
associated to a batch import doing specific biblio records 
modifications: -creating 942$c field, -creating item tags 952 or 995.

For now, you can do that easily with a Perl script and MARC::Record module:

    * loop on ISO2709 file for example
    * read 000_6 code
    * from this code fix a Koha Item Type code
    * add a 942$c

  "942", '', '', c => $typedoc ));
