I agree with Chris. I don't think barcodes have ever shown on the OPAC
detail page.

The options for hiding and showing data in the OPAC based on the
"hidden" setting in the MARC framework is limited to the MARC view in
the OPAC, and even then I don't think it applies to item information.
Sorry, I know that is not made clear by the help file.

Sounds like a job for shelving locations?
