Requesting Item/Patron barcodes from the State Library  (WYLD Frequent Question)

Requesting item barcodes

  • For sheets of pre-printed item barcodes, email Melanie Reedy in the WSL Business Office (melanie.reedy@wyo.gov) to request the number you need.
  • If you are ordering materials with pre-printed barcodes, the WYLD Office will assign a unique 5 digit prefix to your library for this purpose. We are no longer giving out ranges of 39092 barcodes due to many problems in the past with duplicate creation.

Requesting patron barcodes

Do you need a series of numbers for pre-printed, branded patron cards?

  • Contact the WYLD Office for a specific prefix for your cards to prevent any overlap in numbers.
  • Your vendor needs to know that the numbers must be in CODABAR format with a MOD10 check digit (14 digits long)

Do you just need sheets of barcodes to stick on cards you already have?

  • Contact Melanie Reedy (melanie.reedy@wyo.gov) in the WSL Business Office to purchase these barcodes

Email support@wyldnetwork.org with any questions about barcodes.
