OCR Canada helps libraries with solutions featuring barcode printers, barcode scanners, pre-printed labels and colorful patron ID cards. We offer great service, low prices and fast delivery.
Barcoding helps track your books, CDs, DVDs and periodicals and helps you better serve your patrons. The familiar beeping sound of the scanner reading the bars will tell you that the book has been scanned and recorded your patron as the borrower. Software can also check to see if there is any reason why the patron should not be allowed to have the book, such as if it has been placed on hold for someone else’s previous request. Before the patrons are allowed to check out any books, systems can check the label on the patron ID card to make sure that they are a patron in good standing with the library. Then the due dates can be automatically assigned based upon patron category and the loan category of each item being borrowed.
