Barcode Guidelines

Property Management is responsible for placing bar codes on college equipment. Property Management will place the bar codes by using the following procedures:

  • Bar codes will be placed visually on equipment while also being easily accessible to the bar code scanner.
  • If an item costs $1,000 or more and is impossible or not feasible to tag with a bar code, the Inventory Log will be used to keep track of the item.
  • When placing a bar code on a piece of equipment, the following order of preference will be used unless a specific situation dictates otherwise:
    Front of equipment
    Right side of equipment
    Left side of equipment
    Top of equipment
    Back of equipment
    Bottom of equipment
