    How to change the label associated with a patron identifier such as "Barcode" in the patron request form?


    The labels associated with patron login types that show in patron request forms, such as the Hold form, are configured in the loginType section of the file.  

    1. cd /m1/voyager/xxxdb/tomcat/vwebv/context/vwebv/ui/
    2. Open for editing
    3. Search for page.logIn.loginType
    4. Edit the line associated with the loginType label you want to change.

    For example to change "Barcode" to "Patron Barcode":


    page.logIn.loginType.barcode.text=Patron Barcode


    page.logIn.loginType.instId.text=Institution Id


    page.logIn.loginType.ssn.text=Social Security Number

    page.logIn.lastName=Last Name:

    page.logIn.logIn.label=Log in

    page.logIn.homeLibrary.label=Home Library


    page.logIn.briefId.label=ID Number

    This will change the label on both the Log In screen and Patron Request Forms.
