  • 1.  Barcode scanners

    Posted Jul 27, 2023 08:59 AM

    Does anyone have a recommendation for a barcode scanner for a checkout desk, which can scan physical barcodes as well as scan off a screen?

    We are having to change our barcode scanners, due to the need to scan off a cell phone screen as well as off of books.

    With barcode scanners, I can look up the specs to see whether or not they scan off a screen.  Meanwhile, how reliable they are varies a lot and I am interested in any libraries that have a model you like which has performed well in the field at a busy checkout desk.
