      • Code – After inspecting the HTML source, you can search for a specific code. For example, the code for the Journal Search search box title is nui.journalsearch.title and is found in the Journal Search Labels code table:
        HTML Inspection to Find Code
        Code Found in Code Table
      • Description – If you do not know the specific code, you can also search for the display label. For example, the Journal Search label is found in the Journal Search Labels and View Labels code tables:
        Label Found in Code Tables
    3. Select Customize in the row's action list to edit the code table.
    4. For each code that you want to modify, update the Description column to change the display label.
    5. When customizing a table for the first time, click Customize to save your changes and return to the Discovery subsystem page. After an initial customization, you will need to click Save to apply your changes.
