Indiana State Library Barcodes

Good Morning

Materials from the Indiana State Library collection have 14 digit barcodes starting with an “A”. The State Library will be moving to 14 digit barcodes that do not have an alphabet. However, in the meantime ignore the “A.” Most scanners should simply scan the 13 numbers. If not, ignore the “A” and type in the 13 digit number. The barcodes are generally found in the inside of the book on the back of the last page. New barcodes have been ordered and in the future items put in transit will have a 14 digit barcode.
