Session Title

Humble Barcode Rides Again : Automating Circulation at Quatrefoil Library

Presenter Information

Karen Hogan, Quatrefoil Library

Description

Barcodes and automated circulation systems may seem like antiquated technology, yet they are still very useful in the inventory management of a small volunteer-run special library. We will discuss our 18 month project: deciding to move away from a ‘pocket cards and stamps’ system, selecting an low-cost ILS, barcoding 20,000 items, inventory, and privacy policies and procedures in a small, all-volunteer, community library.
