Barcode Scanners & Google Books: Make Your Bookshelf Searchable
While Google Books is a great tool to keep track of all your online literature, it would be great if you could somehow let Google know which books you have at home, so that they too could become searchable. Well, now you can.
By incorporating a barcode scanner into the mix, you can easily scan the barcodes on your books at home and add them to Google’s My Library feature. See the video below for a quick demonstration.
By scanning the barcodes of all of your books to Google’s My Library feature, you have the ability to run full-text searches against all of the books in your library.
With more and more at-home inventory tracking applications, more and more people will become familiar with barcode technology.
