Instructional Materials Management prints the ISBN and the accession number on the same bar code label.

It is recommended that you use a laser printer with a setting of 600 dpi (dots per inch). The label sheet size matches Avery 6578 (polyester label) or 6572 (paper label), or the generic equivalent. This size includes three labels across and five down per sheet (in portrait orientation).
