    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?

  • 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?
