Bug Description

I was testing on on Webby, and discovered that the Spine and Pocket labels only printed the org unit ID, not the shortname or name.


This prints just the ID.





could be added it would be more beneficial to all.

This is a potential show stopper for those PINES libraries with multiple branches that also print pocket labels with org unit name. The current workaround is to type the shortname into the template or label, either at the time of printing or having multiple templates for each branch. Since cataloging staff print out multiple labels for multiple branches at one time -- generally based on what they have cataloged in a day, this is not a workable solution since different branches would be mixed in one print run.

I have found a work around for now.
It will take some coding on the library's end.

Basically you take the id and translate it with in the pocket label. Here is the code for WEBBY. I using this with just my library's Ids. Just make sure all the coding is on one line.

<span ng-switch="copy.circ_lib"><span ng-switch-when="4">BR1</span><span ng-switch-when="5">BR2</span><span ng-switch-when="6">BR3</span><span ng-switch-when="7">BR4</span><span ng-switch-when="8">SL1</span><span ng-switch-when="9">BM1</span><span ng-switch-default>CONS</span></span>

Bumping this up to High - Lynn's workaround is handy, but we can't reasonably expect all of the library systems to implement that workaround.

To reiterate from other bug about Owning Library needed:

callnumber.owning_library only prints the owning library's numeric ID and call_number.owning_lib.shortname prints nothing.
