The Koha Acquisitions module provides a way for the library to record orders placed with vendors and manage purchase budgets.

1. Setup

Before using the Acquisitions Module you will want to make sure that you have completed all of the set up.

First, set your Acquisitions System Preferences and Acquisitions Administration to match your library's workflow.

On the main acquisitions page you will see your library's funds listed.


If the total line is confusing for the funds you have set up you can hide it by adding

#funds_total {display:none;}

to the IntranetUserCSS preference.

To see all active funds you can click the checkbox next to 'Show all' below the funds table.

To see a history of all orders in a fund you can click on the linked amount and it will run a search for you.

Learn more in the Budget/Fund Tracking section of this manual.
