I deal with a lot of old S/36 style menus and use UIM for new, native menus.
I was wondering if there was any way to display the name of the library, in
which the menu resides, on the menu? The reason I ask is because I create
test libraries every night from production. I have separate profiles for
production and test. Sometimes I forget which environment I'm in! Of
course, I can DSPLIBL or WRKUSRJOB. Thought there might be an easier way,
like a parameter on the menus that I missed or forgot about.

We use DSPF/MSGF-type menus. What I've done is displayed the text of
a specified msgid in a specified msgf.

1. Where the message file is specified to be in QTEMP and a setup
program creates the message file and creates the msgid with the
specific text.

2. Where the message file is found by the library list, so the message
file that actually gets found will determine the text which is
displayed. The message file and msgid are permanent.

Assuming that UIM menus can display text from a specified msgid, you
could do something like option 2, where you would have a message file
in every libary in which the menu resides.
