StaffGuide: Sierra

System status, news, and tips and tricks

Overview

Purpose

This setup allows you to print  2 different kinds of labels on the same printer:

  • 2-part receipt and call number / spine labels from checkin boxes
    • controlled to some extent by system settings deep in Sierra
  • Monographic spine labels from item records
    • controlled by a custom print template

This can be confusing at first because you are installing the same printer with two different names.
