Catalog Admin – Creating Catalog Section Headers

Section Headers can be added throughout your catalogs to mark various sections with their own headings. For example, you may use section headers to transition to a new imprint or subject category, shift from frontlist to backlist, or emphasize any other grouping of titles you care to call out within a catalog.

Section headers will also appear as a menu at the top of your catalog, allowing users to quickly jump to a given section.

To insert section headers, go to the catalog’s Manage Titles window via the edit icon:

Next, click the title’s sequence number on the far left. This will bring up additional menu options at the top of the Manage Titles window, including Insert Section Header. You’ll want to select the title that you want the catalog section header to precede, meaning that the title you select will be the first title in that “section”.

Once you’ve highlighted a title and your menu options have expanded as shown above, click Insert Section Header. A text box will appear where you can enter a section header name, change the visibility of your section headers (catalog admins only, others in your organization, or everyone), and choose whether you’d like the headers to be immediately active and visible in your catalogs. When you’re finished, click Save.

An Active section header will be orange. Inactive will be grey.


To edit the text of a section header or remove it completely, simply return to this screen and click the tools icon on the far right side of the header.

Enter new text and re-save, or click the trash can icon to delete the header.


  • Since a section header is “attached” to a particular title, if you add or remove titles that fall into a particular section, the catalog will reflect those changes right away. You won’t need to change anything unless the first title in the section changes.
  • You can move entire sections (section header and associated titles) by selecting each title, then clicking on ‘Move to Position’ in the top menu, and entering the new sequence location where you’d like the grouping to begin.
  • Please note: section headers will only appear when a user is viewing the catalog in Catalog Sequence. They will not appear when other Sort options are selected.
