The Library custodians are bar coded

BPL Custodians

Years ago, on the PUBLIB list there was a discussion about barcoding and patrons with out their cards. Someone (Karen?) suggested that we bar code our patrons.

The other day one of the custodians came into my office, and I saw the tag with the bar code and joked that we are now bar coding our custodians so that we can track them. Brought back memories of that PUBLIB discussion, which I haven't the time or energy to find.

As a reality check, the bar codes are on the uniforms and are part of the uniform service's tracking system so that we get the right items back. The uniforms look good, and I am glad that we are finally there!
