That is exactly what is being done. Melbourne Uni has had it for a few 
years now. And the purpose: reshelving and putting books back that students 
stashed to help them on exams and disadvantage others.  At least that is 
what I was told they were doing when I was working there on a different 
contract at the time. After reading the other postings on this thread, I'm 
not sure how successful it is/was.
