Important:
LIB_COPIES "ID" field is used to create automatic item barcodes.
BORROWERS BOR_IDNO field is used to create automatic patron barcodes.



Questions:
Were do we set the default start from bar code number?

Answer: If you already entered library items, the program does not allow you to change automatically generated barcode numbers. For the new library you can do the following:
- test library features
- run Empty Library
- reset database IDs
- set the initial number in the LIB_COPIES box.
