Re: Barcodes & Property stamps Larmore, Dustin 16 Nov 2005 16:02 UTC

We stamp our books on the inside front cover, on the page facing the
inside front cover, and the title page.

We place the barcode on books and bound journals on the upper left
corner of the inside front cover.

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?
