Assuming that you installed from Debian packages, you can find the SQL and
YAML files for loading the frameworks under

For example, the BKS, SER, etc. frameworks for MARC21 in English can be
found in


If you're looking for other languages or UNIMARC, vary the path under

Since marc21_simple_bib_frameworks.yml is a YAML server, to load it, you
need open a shell session and do something along these lines:

[1] sudo koha-shell KOHA_INSTANCE_NAME
[2] /usr/share/koha/bin/load_yaml.pl -f
/PATH/TO/marc21_simple_bib_frameworks.yml --load
