Abstract: Barcoding though relatively an old technology, is one of the important steps in library automation and is still not widely used in libraries in India. This paper discusses the benefits of barcode technology and gives guidelines for selecting the hardware/softwares highlighting the features of scanners and printers. The paper also gives guidelines for retrospective. conversion, which becomes the core issue in any library with a very large collection. Some tips necessary for software customization have also been provided. This paper is a case study based on the barcoding and retrospective conversion project undertaken at IGIDR Library, Mumbai, India.
