Calling for Labels

Multiple spine and/or Gaylord labels

On October 1, 1998 a change was made to the label production program, affecting the way Gaylord labels are produced. The change makes it possible to indicate the specific number of Gaylord labels needed for an item. It is also possible to produce multiple spine labels with a single Gaylord. This will assist in the processing of scores with multiple instrumental parts or other similar materials, eliminating the production of unnecessary Gaylord labels when multiple spine labels are needed.

Examples

To call for three spine labels and one author-title label, you would enter:
955 |u+l3+g

To call for three spine labels and three author-title labels, you would enter:
955 |u+l3+g3

To call for multiple spine labels (no author-title label), you would enter:
955 |u+l2

The change will not effect the procedure for calling for a single spine label or author-title label: 955 |u+l or 955 |u+l+g

Call# labels for Monographs and/or Serials

Digital Library Group has rewritten the labels program to integrate all the criteria's for requesting call # labels to allow the creation of the daily labels review file to be generated automatically every night.

Call number labels for monographs and/or serials can now be generated by using one of the following methods.

  1. Bibliographic record
    • 04 cat date today's date
    • 955 |u+l

    *if multiple item records you'll need to add the following in each item record that you need a label printed
    950 |imm/dd/yy (today's date, e.g., 08/07/02)

  2. Bibliographic record
    • 955 |u+l yymmdd (today's date inverted, e.g., 020807)

    *if multiple item records you'll need to add the following in each item record that you need a label printed
    950 |imm/dd/yy (today's date, e.g., 08/07/02)

  3. Item record that you need a call number label printed
    • 950 |iyymmdd (today's date inverted, e.g., 020807)
