The images displayed in the XSLT results screen are, unfortunately,
not configurable via Koha's administrative interface. Those "material
type" icons are hard-coded. The material type is not defined in the
MARC record by the item type but by the material type defined in the

The only option at the moment for customizing those icons would be to
replace the files on the server with alternatives of your own with the
same file names.

One of the reasons there is a distinction between material type and
item type is that material type is always defined at the bibliographic
level. Item type can be defined at the item level. So in some
libraries one bibliographic record might have multiple items with
different item types. It is for that reason that itemtype and/or
collection code are not displayed on the search results screen.
