Description Katrin Fischer 2011-10-04 14:20:08 UTC
I talked to someone about acquisitions and we came up with following idea for a new feature:

After searching the catalog, when nothing is found we currently display a button to start a Z39.50 search.

Idea 1) Add an additional 'Add suggestion' button at this place in staff
Idea 2) Make it possible to add a suggestion using a result from z39.50 search

Basically Idea 2 means to make it possible to use an existing or a downloaded record for suggestions (like we do with orders). So if you are requesting 'one or many more of this book' you could use the record in the system. Or you could use the bibliographic data from a z39.50 source instead of entering the data manually.
