Subject: Smart barcoding

Smart barcoding

From: Lorraine Olley <olley>
Date: Wednesday, November 15, 1989
IU is in the process of implementing NOTIS, and as a part of that,
we will be doing a smart barcoding project early next year.  I would
appreciate hearing from others who have had to cope with the
preservation-related fallout from such a project, i.e., those books
which are identified as deteriorated during the barcoding process.
I'd be interested to know what percentage of the barcoded materials
fell into that category, how those items were treated (or not
treated), what extra resources were needed to deal with the problem
books, and if anyone had success in getting additional support for
this aspect of the smart barcoding project.

I'm also curious about what other libraries have decided about
barcode placement in books, and on microfilm/fiche, audiocassettes,
videocassettes, CDs. Thanks!
