BibioTECH uses barcodes to quickly identify patrons and resources …

  • You can optionally assign a barcode to a patron or a resource
    (barcodes are not mandatory BUT are highly recommended)

  • Each assigned barcode must be unique across all patrons and resources

  • Barcodes can include digits and letters (no spaces nor other characters)

  • The system can handle barcodes with differing formats in the same system

  • Barcodes can be any length from 1 to 30 characters
    (this allows the use of euipment serial number barcodes to be used)

  • The barcode format for resources can be different to that used for patrons
    (this allows the school admin system identifier to be used for patron barcodes)
