Again, thank you.

Yep, after reading, re-reading, and reading the documentation again, I learned I can implement item and collection facets in the following way:

  1. use the authorized values function to define one or more CCODEs
  2. add one or more 952 fields in my MARC and insert a CCODE to $8, as above
  3. use bulk-import to... import and index the data

Very nifty, and to date I have implemented five different collections and two different types. See:


The addition of facets make filtering initial search results fun and easy. Again, koha++  Thank you.
