Import MARC records into Koha using graphical interface

Prepare MARC file. 
Check item information (tag number 952); branch code, accession number, item type etc. If number of MARC records goes beyond 1000, split into small batches (1000 records per batch). Otherwise, it will take a long time to import records and chance for time out and can't know the progress. Command line method is good for importing bulk records.
