Is there a way for the program to automatically assign a number to each new media. In the past, our system assigns an accession number to each new item which allows us to keep a running inventory. Is this possible? Thank you in advance

If you are talking about Add New Copy, required field Barcode Number:
Yes, it is possible to assign this number automatically, starting from OpenBiblio release 0.5.2.
On page Add New Copy:
* Check (click) checkbox just before text "Autogenerate"
* Leave empty (will be ignored): required field "Barcode Number"
There is more info on this feature in the OpenBiblio Help system, accessible from "Add New Copy" page from one of these links:
* Left hand menu "Help"
* or "Help" at bottom of page
