How do I make bulk changes to my library holdings?

The Batch Item Modification tool on the Tools page can be used to make a consistent change to a batch of Koha item records represented by a list of barcodes.

A typical application for this sort of tool is when you need to change a subset of the data in a particular field from one value to another.  
In this downloadable case study a librarian wishes to change the home library for all the items in a branch which is closing down to the main library.  She also wants to create a Note in the item record to say that this has occurred.  After all items have been transferred out of the closing library, the old branch can be removed from the system.
