Easily replace worn barcode labels by scanning or typing the existing label. Produce high quality, lasting barcodes anywhere in your library-at the circulation desk or in the stacks. Replace old labels or add new ones, like categorizing collections.
Example: One of our college library’s purchased 30,000 preprinted customized laminated labels to mark their collection. Over time, some labels became damaged and the barcode scanner could not read them. The staff then had to manually type the ISBN numbers into their systems to check a book in or out. Our library duplicator allowed them to create new labels by scanning (when possible) or typing the number into our stand alone system and print a new label. Collection tracking problem solved.
“The Symbology Barcode Duplicator that we purchased for our main library, circulation desk, has been a significant time saver for day-to-day operations. In this environment barcodes are torn, scraped, scribbled on, defaced, curled, faded and generally abused regularly, and need to be replaced. If they can be scanned at all this duplicator is a major advantage, especially when there are lots of barcodes that need to be replaced. If they cannot be scanned it’s easy to manually enter the scan code and generate a replacement barcode on the spot. It literally takes only a second to scan a barcode – and another second to print it. It doesn’t get much better – or faster – than that. From an IT perspective it has been a good solution and circulation was ecstatic when it arrived! Once it’s setup it’s virtually maintenance free – just add new labels and change the ribbon as needed. I was surprised at how popular it became in such a short period of time.”
