Do you really need the scanner if you can't afford it? You can just type the
numbers of the barcord in instead of using the scanner.

Subject: library scanners
Here at Doty (Worcester) Elem. we have Winnebago Circulation software
We need to get a new scanner for our library, and Winnebago wants
$500.00, which seems like a bit much. This is for a scanner in a holder
so that the book is run across the scanner and it picks up the bar code,
sort of like a grocery store scanner.
We can not really afford this.
What do other schools do for scanners? Does anyone have a catalog
address or web site for gun scanners etc that will interface with DOS
