I recommend Linda Blaser's article "Barcoding at the Folger
Shakespeare Library" in the Book and Paper Group Annual vol. 19,
Although this article is about attaching barcodes and not microchips
to book covers, I wonder if her system could be helpful in your
circumstances. Linda's article explains her system of using a
polyethylene strapping around the back cover of a book and adhering
the barcode to the outside of the strapping.
