Smart Barcode Production

M

ost Integrated Library Systems (ILS) use a piece-specific number printed on a label to identify the item throughout the system. The most common method is a barcode label, although some systems use OCR or RFID. MARCIVE will create barcode labels for any project.

To save work, consider having smart barcode labels created from your MARC data. We will build item fields that contain a unique number for each item and print that number on the matching barcode label (along with the book’s title, call number, and library).  

Once the bib records with item fields are loaded into your ILS, you do not have to scan the barcode. The label is ready to apply and the piece is ready to circulate.

The barcodes are printed in call number order to make the barcoding process easier.

Generic Barcode Production

At the same time, you can order generic (or “dumb”) barcodes to use for pieces that were not part of the database processing project. Generic labels look like the smart labels except lack a call number or title.

Generic barcodes are also available to libraries that are not doing a project but want barcode labels on hand for cataloging.
