Library Cards and Barcodes

Libraries may order PINES cards and barcodes under an agreed-upon group discount from PermaCard (formerly, Creative Data Products). Please contact:

All barcodes and library cards should use Codabar format.

Libraries are not obligated to order from PermaCard, but if your library chooses to use a different company, you will be responsible for tracking the barcode and card number sequences for your system. (If you use PermaCard, they already track sequences for all PINES library systems.)
