Barcoding-When the title is IN the database

Barcoding refers to adding a library's own copy of an item to a title that already exists in the database. In general this involves entering only item-specific information, such as Item Type, Home Location, Item Categories, etc. Here is a document for barcoding a copy when the title is ALREADY in the database (updated on January 6, 2016 to include Item Category 3. Updated August 22, 2017 with Item Category 4).

If libraries have multiple items to add of the same type (ex: a stack of DVDs), properties can be set to streamline the adding of copies; instructions for setting properties can be found in this document: Setting Properties.

If additional help is needed with barcoding, contact Stephanie Thomas at the Oshkosh Public Library.  WTCS members may also contact Cindy Wallace at WCTS.
