ABSTRACT
The article details the process of bar coding of government documents at the Henry F. Moellering Memorial Library at Valparaiso University in Indiana to be stored in the automated storage and retrieval system. The bar codes need to be printed in Superintendent of Documents Classification order and separated by material type. Clean-up of the catalog provided better user access to paper documents and those on disk. A plan to complete the bar coding scheme on microfiche is in place.
