    How do I get more barcodes?

    Send an e-mail to Shari Fisher, Assistant Director, at:  Tell her whether you need patron barcodes or item barcodes, how many you need, and what the imprint on the item barcodes should be; for example, "Ely Public Library."  Patron barcodes always have the imprint "Arrowhead Library System."  Barcodes cost $23/ thousand (plus shipping) and are ordered from MINITEX, who gives you a discount and tracks the last barcode number used in previous orders for your location.  You must order a minimum of 3000 barcodes.  It takes about 2-3 weeks for the barcodes to be sent to Shari.  She will put them in your delivery bin, and you'll get them with your next delivery from ALS.
