A library catalog card is a paper card (cardstock paper, usually 3 by 5 inches) that contains bibliographic information about the library item: author's name, book title, item location (call number), publisher, place, date, subjects. Author Card lists author's name on the top of the card. Title Card lists book's title on the top of the card. Subject Card lists book's subject on the top of the card.
In this topic we explain how to create a library index card (title card) and save it to a template for future use.
This topic shows how to use Header/Footer and Keywords in the label design. You can enter keywords in two ways:
<$FIELD:FieldName:$> - there is ":" after the field name, this means spaces should be converted to new lines
This is the content of the Included Fields box and the corresponding parts on the library catalog card:
1st line: empty line
2nd line: title
3rd line: empty line
4th line: author
5th line: space + space + space + space + space + title + place + publisher + date published
6th line: pages
7th line: empty line
8th line: subject1 + space + subject2 + space + subject3
In the Header/Footer box you can include text and keywords that represent data fields. You can enter keywords in two ways:
<$FIELD:FieldName$> <$FIELD:FieldName:$> - there is ":" after the field name, this means spaces should be converted to new lines
