Bar code explanation: -
A barcode is an optical, machine-readable, representation of data; the data usually describes something about the object that carries the barcode. Originally barcodes systematically represented data by varying the widths and spacing's of parallel lines, and may be referred to as linear or one-dimensional (1D)
Barcode labels for books are called Bookland EAN or EAN-13 barcode symbols. The EAN barcode is created from the International Standard Book Number (ISBN)for the book. Although the EAN barcode is much like that used for general retail merchandise, the numbering system used to generate the bar code for books is different.
