We put the barcode on the front outside of the CD and DVD paper cover, but
we also put a ring with the barcode number around the center hole of the
disc. The labels and printer are Dymo products (LabelWriter and CD/DVD Core
Labels: 320 labels per $12 roll. We don't put any other

center/core ring will fall under the clamp that holds the disc in place as
it spins. We've been using this system for a year now without problems.

Subject: [Videolib] Checkout barcodes on the inside of CD and DVD boxes

Do any of you put these barcodes on the inside of CD and DVD boxes? Can

and the library system doesn't keep last borrower. We end up with empty
boxes and no way to retrieve the contents.

Many thanks.
