[Koha] Koha Branches - a question from the field

Dear friends,

A Koha (3.8) user colleague posed an interesting question today. At
present at their college, they have created a College-level group, and
under this they have created departmental branches.

Books and other items belong to these departments as well as as to the
college library. At present, these "departmental" libraries are
strictly notional entities (they essentially represent subjects, funds
and acquisition heads), as the actual items all reside at the college
library's stacks.

And therein lays the question. Suppose in future, one of these
departments wish to actually set up a separate departmental library,
with their existing holdings continuing to stay at the college's
library and only new acquisitions being located in the departmental
library, what would the librarian need to / can do to address this in

what you suggest?

thanks in advance
