>>>If you barcode as new material comes in, you can save tremendous amounts
of time by using default values for fields that repeat (i.e. locality data
from many specimens from the same trap sample). <<<

I do that anyway.  I enter data for new specimens, with defaulting and
dittoing when useful (less frequently such a big issue with birds as with
malaise samples, granted, but useful at times), and the computer prints out
a human-readable label from the catalogue database.  How is producing a bar
code label tremendously faster or more accurate?
