First of all, thank you for your time, and i apologize if this question has
been asked before. I didn't find in the 2005 or 2006 archives, but I may
certainly have missed it. But, here is my question:
I am helping a smallish library (about 6,000 volumes) migrate to Koha.
We already have an online catalog, so to speak, but no barcodes,
circulation, or any of that.
Basically our plan is to export the records from the old catalog into MARC
format and import into Koha using the bulkmarcimport.pl . We would like the
Koha to automatically generate barcodes and print them with our own printer.
However, in the user guide it says we must have marc support turned off to
automatically generate barcodes. Is this still true?
We need to use MARC-21. So if we cannot automatically generate barcodes I
would like to know, so that we can plan to buy pre-printed ones instead (if
Ideally, what we would like to do is have the barcodes print with the call #
on the bottom, and be printed in call number order (like a shelf list of
barcodes?) I would also like to know if this is possible.
Thank you very much in advance,
