    Question

    Can I include Call Number in the [Print Template Spine Bibliographic] or [Print Template Piece Bibliographic] stanzas in the spinelabel.cfg file for when I print spine or piece labels?

    Answer

    No.  You can only include Field Codes from record types above or equal to (in the record hierarchy) the template you are trying to modify, and not from below it.  

    So you can do this (Title Field Code in Item Template):

    [Print Template Spine Item]

    \F301

    \F401

    [Print Template Piece Item]

    \F202

    \F301

    \F203

    \F401

    And this (Title Field Code in Holdings Template):

    [Print Template Spine Holdings]
    Mfhd Id: \F300
    Call Number: \F301
    Title - Brief: \F201
    [Print Template Piece Holdings]
    Mfhd Id: \F300
    Call Number: \F301
    Title: \F202
    Author: \F203

     

    But not this (Call Number Field Code1 in Bibliographic Template):

    [Print Template Spine Bibliographic]

    Name: \B\F102\b

    Addr1: \U\F510\u

    Bib Id: \F200

    Author: \F203

    Imprint:

    Title: \F202

    Title - Brief: \F201

    Call Number: \F301

     

    [Print Template Piece Bibliographic]

    Name: \B\F102\b

    Addr1: \U\F510\u

    Bib Id: \F200

    Author: \F203

    Imprint:

    Title: \F202

    Title - Brief: \F201

    Call Number: \F301

    1Note that the Call Number Field Code (\F301) is pulled from the mfhd_master.display_call_no, which indexes subfields $h, $i, $k and $m.
