*What labels are compatible with the label report in LibraryWorld and where
can I get them?* <http://www.libraryworld.com/help.php?command=read&id=83>
We recommend you order your Spine Only labels from Highsmith (item # 43622),
and your Spine and Pocket labels from Highsmith (item # 43602) or Brodart
(item # 55-395-013). (Catalog)

A quick search at Highsmith yielded six-across spine labels, 1-1/2 x 7/8"
They look like this:

Lots of wasted space, imho, but they work.

You do have to go to the set-up instructions, also in "Help"

*Setup Instructions for Printing Labels*

If you are accessing your library on a Mac computer:

   1. You must use Safari when printing labels.
   2. It is not necessary for you to adjust the margins.
   3. When viewing the labels on the screen (before sending them to the
   printer), select Safari's View menu and make sure 'Actual Size' is selected.
   If you 'Zoom In' or 'Zoom Out' the report will print in a different font
   size and will not align with the label stock.

 If you are accessing your library on a Windows computer:

   1. You must use Internet Explorer when printing labels.
   2. Go to Page Setup on Internet Explorer’s File menu to adjust the
   margins.

   Start with these settings:
   - Left: 0.3
      - Right: .25
      - Top: .50
      - Bottom: .25

   3. Remove any text that will print as a header or footer.
   4. When viewing the labels on the screen (before sending them to the
   printer), select Internet Explorer's View menu and make sure the selected
   Text Size is 'Medium'. If you print with a different text size the report
   will print in a different font size and will not align with the label stock.

   5. Print out some test labels on regular paper and line them up with your
   label stock. If the printing does not line up correctly with the label
   stock, you will have to adjust the left and/or top margin settings. You
   should not have to make any changes to the Right or Bottom margin settings.


   1. To adjust the vertical placement, adjust the top margin. To start
   printing higher, make the margin smaller. To start printing lower, make the
   margin larger.
   2. To adjust the horizontal placement, adjust the left margin. To start
   printing farther to the left, make the margin smaller. To start printing
   farther to the right, make the margin larger.



Once it is set up one time, you don't have to do it again, and it works
pretty well.
