Description Nicole C. Engard 2016-01-06 16:17:29 UTC
This would work very similarly to the current check-in module on the staff client, except that patron information won’t be displayed. Once all books are scanned in for check-in, a “Finish” button can be clicked in order to return to the main shelf-checkout screen to login with ID and checkout books as normal.

Work to be done:
1) Create new sco-checkin.pl script
2) Create new sco-checkin.tt template
3) Make sco-checkin.pl accept barcodes and mark items as returned
4) If item cannot be returned ( i.e. AddReturn returns 0 ) request that the item be taken to a library for returning.

This development would be great for schools. With severe budget cuts, many school libraries are only staffed a few hours a week. So much of the library circulation is done with self-checkout. In elementary schools the checkout process is simple and easy to use. However, using the self checkout as it is now for CHECKINs it too complicated for grade schoolers. self checkin: Log Into SelfCheckout with patron number, scan card, select Return this Item; Renew this Item or Cancel. A stand alone checking would be just what this situation needs!
