We stamp the library name on the three unbound sides of the book or journal.
On journals, the barcode is on the outside, top front, left, close to the
spine edge.
On books, the barcode is on the outside back near the top of the item.

Subject: [SERIALST] Barcodes & Property stamps

I'm doing some research dealing with property stamps and barcoding.

How many times should a title, monograph or serial be stamped with your
library's name? And where do you stamp it?

Second question deals with barcodes. Where do you place the barcode?
Inside or outside cover? Front or back?
