Hi Tasha,

at the moment it's not possible to specify which fields not to copy. But there is a bug report requesting this functionality that you could comment on:

*BugĀ 26071*
<https://bugs.koha-community.org/bugzilla3/show_bug.cgi?id=26071> - Allow to configure fields not to be copied when using "Edit as new (duplicate)" in cataloging

Hope this helps,
