Infiniti supports the creation and printing of custom resource labels. Custom labels can be used in conjunction with spine labels and barcode labels or they can be used as an alternative to these. Custom labels can contain any combination of; main title, main author, barcode, barcode number, call number, site, and section. Label dimensions can vary according to requirements. Custom labels can incorporate a variety of fonts, colours, and layouts. Labels are prepared in the custom label management and workspace and printed to PDF for preview prior to printing to appropriate stationery.
Note: Prior to printing a custom label check if a custom template has already been created in the label templates library.
