As a librarian I'm aware of the occasional need for "raids" into
academic's offices to check for long held items. Now the librarian can
just walk up and down the corridor and scan the offices for outstanding
library books. Also the defense, I brought it back and you didn't do
the returns processing, will be proven to be invalid.
With wifi and linked to the library management system a roving security
librarian will be able to identify stolen books as they are carried
past outside the library and apprehend the miscreant particularly if
they can also scan the student/staff card remotely at the same time.
The library will not only be able to send overdue book notices but
stolen book notices.
This technology will be a boon to libraries!
