BH BS: 1984 or Fahrenheit 451? (18) RE: BS: 1984 or Fahrenheit 451? 28 Oct 02


Just a point of information here. I head the board of our local libraY.

Now, depending what program is used on the computers , many do not keep any history of books or other material checked out by patrons. Only the current ones for overdue charges---should that occur.

When, years back ( ah, the old days) when the librarians had pencils with a rubber date stamp for the due date to stamp on a card everyone could know who checked what out.   

1984 is at hand, but it is not really at the library---at a lot of other places...I will say, though, that there might be some library systems that do keep histories of check-outs--ours does not.
