An app called ZBar is the best I have found.  Most of the apps make it easy to buy the books on Amazon... not what you want.

With ZBar, you scan with your built-in camera.  You can then email yourself a .csv file with all of your scanned ISBN13 codes among other things.  It can also look up the books in various databases as well.

It is free (and OpenSource), check it out.

One of our librarians is interested in taking her book inventory with her iPad.  Are any of your librarians using ipads to do this?  She purchased a connector that allows her to connect her barcode scanner through a USB port to her iPad, but we haven't had any luck with it yet.
