Help, how to topics > Print labels.



Question: Printing individual labels. Is there a way to specify where on the label sheet to print an individual barcode label or set of labels? We want to use up a sheet of labels where the top few rows have already been used.

You can print from any position; you can print multiple copies of the same label; you can print one label or all, you can from first or current, you can print only labels for recently modified records.


Question: I want a software system that will print dewey spine lables and create dewey based card catelogues. Does yours do that? I can't find it in the demo. If not, why not. It would seem basic to any real small library that is a library and not just a collection of books and CDs that was going to be checked out and searched by more than just one person.
Answer: You catalog your library items. If the data includes Dewey information, you can have it on your spine labels. You can try using our auto-cataloging feature and select the Library of Congress as the search source. Search results from the Library of Congress include Dewey's value.


Question: 1. How do I print book labels under a certain CATEGORY only?
2. I want to print and have labels for ALL books in our library. However, how do I put borrowing restrictions on REFERENCE books for those cheeky ones that try and borrow them?

Answer: In the library's main catalog, define and execute the search for a particular Category. The search works as a filter, and it will display a relevant group of records. When you use the print labels, it will process the said records group. You can set rules that limit loans of books from some categories. You can define rules in the library options window.

Question: Do I need to enter all the books in our library before I print barcodes, or can I enter the books in batches and print the barcodes after each batch?

Answer: You decide how you can print barcode labels from our library software. You can print: in batches, only one, randomly selected, by any range, from one category, by location, by barcode range, by entry date, by date range, enter today, entered in last week.
