    Configuring Display Labels for Primo VE

    The labels that display on the Brief Results, Full Display, Services, Journal Search, and My Library Card pages are configured with various code tables under the Discovery subsystem (such as Full Display Labels code table). The values that display to end users are configured with the Description field, which permits the use of HTML elements to provide customized formatting in the UI.
    To modify a label:
    1. Open the Discovery UI Labels code table (Configuration Menu > Discovery > Display Configuration > Label).
