ARE YOU READY FOR THIS?
Acquiring the LIBRO system (integrated library software) this school year only marks the first step in making the integrated Xavier School libraries fully-automated. After migrating all the data from InfoLib last year, now here’s the BARCODING stage. Barcoding is the process of providing machine-readable labels (barcodes) to each item that the library holds, linking the material to its bibliographic information in the OPAC. This action aims to facilitate easier and faster tracking of materials whether for circulation (borrowing) or inventory purposes. In fact, some teachers and students have already been assigned barcode labels for their personal library accounts. With this, the iLRC hopes to offer paper-less transactions in the near future as regards checking in and out of materials in the library.
