    Translatable
    To configure how library and location appear:
    • Catalog Administrator
    You can customize whether the library and location appear in the search results, and other areas, as codes, names, or both.
    To customize how the library and location appear:
    On the Library/Location Display page (Resource Management > Resource Configuration > Configuration Menu > General > Library/Location Display), for each area select one of the options for how the library and location appear and click Save.
    Library/Location Display Page
    • Code – The libraries and locations appear as <library code>:<location code>.
    • Name – The libraries and locations appear as <library name>:<location name>.
    • Code + Name – The libraries and locations appear as <library code><tab><library name>:<location code><tab><location name>.
    The areas are:
    • Repository Search Results – How the search results appear the library and location.
    • MD Editor Editing Holdings Record - 852 Field Form – How the Sublocation or collection (b) and Shelving location (c) drop-down lists in the MD Editor form editor appear the location.
    For example, here are search results with the location code only:
    Search with Library/Location Codes
    Search results with the location name only:
    Search with Library/Location Names
    Search results with the location code + name:
    Search with Library/Location Codes + Names
