Aleph assigns a barcode to each of its items. Our institution has storage facilities where all locations, shelves, drawers, and even boxes and bins have assigned barcodes. We wanted to use these barcodes to assign locations to the items when we put the items away. We can take advantage of these barcodes for audit purposes. We decided to manage locations as items in Aleph and to assign locations to items using the barcode with a developed JAVA application that uses the Ex Libris API. We assign the barcode of the location and the description of the location to the item. We control the modification of items that have locations assigned and audit the storage facility and stored items.
