Here's an idea.

Could kwlug get the kwlug library listed electronically? (Within
Drupal?) Last I and others looked, any functionally near Drupal
modules are unmaintained, out of date, broken, and/or don't deal with 
the lending aspect.

Course, we'd have to fire up a kwlug egroupware site to facilitate
collaboration. (-:

Who's in, and what might you like to do?


	I could, for example, help with look & feel spec., buy a book scanner 
and scan the books into an elist, test, and/or be a volunteer remote 
librarian.

	Note: Past discussions have concluded that the physical library must 
remain at the working centre - it's the only non-residential space for 
them all that we know of. Even if Charles is sick, others could get to 
the stacks. This also means that Charles, likely, would be the one to 
log in new books that arrive. Doesn't mean he has to do all the 
initial data loading though, only just after that. Also, it's 
impractical to cart the entire library back and forth, but books could 
be brought to the meeting by request. (Request mechanism would be a 
simple e-mail message to the librarian.)
