Work at SourceForge, help us to make it a better place! We have an immediate need for a Support Technician in our San Francisco or Denver office.
We have multiple copies of the same book - ISBN. is there any way of using the same ISBN on these or do we have to print barcodes for all books?
Hans van der Weij
Libraries need a unique code to distinguish between copies in circulation, so ISBN is not usable.
In theory you could improvise:
* To circulate copy A: first type A in the circulation form and then scan the ISBN
* copy B: first type B …
Probably not very practical.
So yes, it is better to print barcodes.
Did you know you can do that using OpenBiblio's reports system?
