    Barcode scanner media booking system, does any one know a good package?

    Hi There I need to stop theft in my department. Ive tried booking sheets etc with little success. I think that maybe a barcode scanner may be the answer. Does anyone know a good software, scanner and printer package.

    thanks
    Jay

    depending how complex you want it you could probably buy a cheap barcode scanner and some stickly labels get a bit of software that prints them and just write a quick access database

    How do you propose that using a barcode scanner will stop theft?

    Why not just use a security label and/or make note of the serial number on booking sheets? Get the person to sign a form too saying they are responsible for the hardware until it's handed back, otherwise they will be paying for any loss/damages.

    Does your school still have a library/resource centre? Get friendly with your resource manager/librarian and ask her/him to manage them (aka entered into the library system).

    Attach the barcodes to the kids and scan them when they take equipment. Simples!
