CCD Barcode Scanner

Brian exhibits proper form as he scans a virtual library card. SCLS recently purchased a Unitech MS335 CCD scanner for testing.  As you may have read from Kerri's post about virtual library cards, this type of scanner is capable of reading barcodes stored on a Smartphone.  The scanner can also read the standard barcode stickers on items and patron library cards.  If your library is thinking about supporting virtual library cards, you may want to borrow our CCD scanner.  Call the Help Desk if you would like to have the scanner sent to your library for a trial period.  If you decide you like the scanner and find it worthwhile to support virtual cards, we can discuss ordering a CCD scanner for the library.  The scanners cost about $100 and plug into a USB port.
