What is Barcode Authentication?

Barcode authentication is for academic or public library's that use library cards with barcode numbers that can be used to authenticate into the ProQuest platforms. The library barcode requires a common prefix which is a series of letters and/or numbers that remain the same across the barcode. We do support multiple barcode prefixes and lengths for most products.
