    I'm looking at building in bar code ability to an intranet library
    application (asp.net vb). Any suggestions on where to look for
    documentation, examples or components would be appreciated.

    If you want to write bar codes, you could download a barcode font on the
    server, use GDI+ to generate a GIF.

    So to include in a page, you would have something like :

    <IMG src='barcode.aspx?1234567'/>

    where 1234567 is the barcode.

    PS

    I've not tried this, I have just thought it up now, but I do know barcode
    fonts exists as I have used them for FAT CLIENT apps.

    I am going to need to look into an entire solution; hardware scanners and
    such. I was wondering if anyone has any comments on experience with such
    systems.

    Two things that may not seem too obvious at first...

    1. You cant scan a screen image of a barcode. At least not on a normal
    screen. You will need to have printed barcodes and use the scanner to
    get the barcode.

    2. Most cheap barcode scanners use a driver called a "keyboard wedge"
    or some such terminology. This means that when you scan something it
    ends up as keyboard codes - as if you typed the value of the barcode
    in on the keyboard. If the cursor is on a text box, it gets typed in
    directly.
