Cataloging a Personal Library
By: Jesse - 7/30/2014

Often customers call in looking for an inexpensive way to catalog their personal library. They also want it to be quick and easy. “Which barcode scanner can just scan the ISBN number on the book and add it to an Excel spreadsheet?” they ask. The easy answer is “any of them” but that only transfers the ISBN number to Excel, nothing more. You then have to enter (type in) all of the information you want to be associated with the ISBN: title; author; copyright etc… The more efficient way to do this would be to purchase a simple corded scanner, like the Short Range, and sign up for a free (or close...
