We put our barcode on the video cassette, not the box; but we put the
barcode on the jewel case/outside case on the CDs and audio
cassettes. Seems to work ok. We have a barcode cloner if something
happens to the barcode label itself.

Subject: bar code placement

We are in the process of automating our medium size public
library. Might I inquire as to where others on the listserv
place their bar codes on AV materials? My thought is to
place them on the materials themselves as they need to be
verified during check-in anyway.
Another question: does a bar code affect the spin of a
compact disc?
