Label preferences

The changes that you make for labels on the User Preferences dialog box affect the appearance of all labels in your print job

In the User Preferences dialog on the MARC 21 Create page or Edit page, you can adjust the settings to:

  • Customize the pre-label or post-label automatic stamps

In the User Preferences dialog on the Saved Lists page > Labels tab, you can adjust the settings to:

  • Select the label format used
  • Make fine adjustments to margins on the top and left sides
  • Select the name and size of the font used
  • Customize the pre-label or post-label automatic stamps

For the automatic stamps, by default the system uses the 852 $k information for the pre-label (appears above the call number) and the 852 $m information for the post-label (appears below the call number).
