I think we need more information to help.
Has he done any batch imports lately?
Is he finding the same catalog records duplicated?  In other words if he
searches on a title, does the same basic catalog record come up with
different biblio numbers and barcodes?

Is the autoBarcode preference set to generate barcodes automatically?
(Home>Administration>System preferences>Cataloging)

We had a problem with ghost records a while back, but it was a zebra
problem. It only looked like we had duplicate records, they didn't really
exist.  But it sounds like this is a different problem.
