Barcode labels

Generic barcode labels can be ordered from The Library Corporation to use as replacement barcode labels or to process items. The Library Corporation has all of the information necessary to generate unique barcodes for each school. To order barcode labels, use the barcode label order form. The form is pre-populated except for the local information for each school, the PO number (which should be generated at the school) and the number of barcode labels required. CPS specifications require barcode pairs; know that 1000 pairs of barcode labels are enough to barcode 1000 items and order the appropriate amount. Also, remember to include shipping in the cost when generating the PO.

The completed order form can be used as a quote for opening a Purchase Order.

* IMPORTANT NOTE *
Per letter from the CPS Dept of Procurement and Contracts, NO order can be submitted without an approved original Purchase Order unless the school is paying individually by check or credit card. It could take up to 2 weeks for TLC to receive the PO from the time you request it. TLC submits the order on Friday the week PO is received, the ship date is Monday, 10 days after that with a 2 day shipping timeframe. Additionally, be sure that the PO includes the shipping costs indicated below as well as the purchase price to prevent additional delays in the arrival of the barcode labels.

Computers

The SOAR library system requires one dedicated computer in the library. Any recent computer will run the system, but computers purchased more than 2 years ago will run the system slower than newer computers. Any new computer purchased through the CPS strategic sourcing vendors will run the system. It is recommended that computers have at least 1 gb RAM.

Computers need to have a web browser installed including Mozilla Firefox or Internet Explorer version 8 or higher.

Barcode scanners

Barcode scanners can be ordered from The Library Corporation using the following form. Descriptions of the recommended scanners follow. If there is already a barcode scanner in the library, contact the Department of Libraries to inquire as to whether this scanner will work with the SOAR library system.
