You might consider adapting a procedure Linda Blaser developed for
applying barcode stickers to rare books in the Folger Library's
modern stacks: adhering the sticker to polyethylene strapping.  As
Linda wrote in Vol. 19 of the Book and Paper Group Annual, "The
strapping is formed into a ring and slid onto the back cover. The
barcode is adhered to that strap."  For the full article, see
