Subject : Digital container bar codes
As you know, digital container bar codes are fourteen digits with a check digit.
Unfortunately, it has come to our attention that some digital containers have shipped to network libraries with bar codes that have fifteen digits with a check digit. We are currently working with LC Industries, the container manufacturer who applies the bar code, to determine the extent of the problem and implement corrective action to assure this does not happen in the future.
If you receive, or have received, bar codes with fifteen digits with a check digit, and they cause difficulties with your circulation system, please report the problem to [log in to unmask]
