Are you using MARC or non-MARC? I don't know if that makes a difference.
If you're using MARC to find which field to change do the following:

In Koha Administration select Links Koha - MARC DB. In the dropdown
select items. You should see here which MARC field is mapped to
items.barcode in the database. Then in Koha Administration select
Biblioframework. In your default framework (or whatever framework you
use) search for the tag you just noted. View subfields. Edit
subfields. Find your subfield (probably 952p if you have a recent
default installation). Under plugin dropdown change it to blank. Now
barcode will never be generated automatically for that framework.

I have been wanting to turn off the mandatory barcode for some  time (I don't want to have to enter a barcode number for cataloged Web sites)  but have not been able to firgure out how to do it.
