Scanning Books

Yesterday, we started the process of scanning all the barcodes of media in our collection and photographing the title pages or covers of those without bar codes. We’re using the free and open source application Bar Code Scanner which creates a CSV file. We can then import the file into LibraryThing – they’ve generously offered us a free lifetime account! We continued scanning into the night using headlamps and flashlights. Here you see Eric’s son Jesse along with some folks from Radical Reference working on intake.
