Sleepwalking into danger

Preparations for moving Noddy Library into new premises a hundred yards down the road have started at last after nearly three years' mucking about. The shelves are in at last and we've started moving the new stock from storage into the new site. We're doing a stock check as we go along using hand-held scanners to make sure that anything accidentally left behind isn't recorded as being on the shelves and it's working pretty well. Which might explain why my guard was down when I was approached by T.Aldous.

"Are those hand-held sets working OK at Noddy?"

"Yes, it's working really well and they're steaming ahead with the job."

"So we could do the same thing at Glass Road when that moves?"


"Could we use it at Pottersbury Road as well?"

"Don't see why not."

"So we'd give the teachers the hand-held sets and they'd be able to issue books to their classes..."

"Ah... no. If you want to do self-service at those libraries we really need to put in self-service."

Exit systems librarian with soiled trousers!
