NESFA® Treasury Procedures: Cash Register Problems
This procedure is not exhaustive. It is an attempt to document a few
special things that have to be done in order to use the cash register effectively.
Books which must be rebarcoded
White Papers, 9780915368716, printed barcode is illegible
Dancing Naked, 9781886778467, no barcode printed on d.j.
Shards of Honor, 9781886778207, printed barcode is incorrect
Frankensteins and Foreign Devils, hardcover, 9781886778030, printed barcode is incorrect
- The slip-cased editions of Boskone books have the normal dust jacket on them,
which has the barcode for the trade state of the same book. This means that
some method must be devised to register the items when they are sold. Possible
- Bagging the books and barcoding the bags
- Sticking the barcode directly to the slip-case
- Having a reference barcode by the register which can be scanned
- Having a button on the register for that one item
Books printed without dust jackets
- These books should be handled in a manner similar to the way we handle
slip-cased editions, with an additional option:
- Insert a piece of paper or index an index card with the barcode into the book.
3-digit PLU numbers
- In order to have an easily understood and easily executed backup method for
registering a book whose barcode is illegible, each book is entered in the register
a second time using the last 3 digits of the book's ISBN-13 code, including
the check digit.
Dancing Naked has ISBN-13 code 9781886778467, but can also
be registered using code 467[PLU].
