Anyone have a successful umbrella check out system at their institution?  Looking for a way to stop losing umbrellas.

Reach out to Scott; he can tell you more about their system.  And you can mention I sent this information over to you.

At Xavier University, we utilize a circulation software (Sierra) to check out all of our loan items (umbrellas, laptops, board games, yard games, etc.). Students use their student ID to check out the item through our union's Welcome Desk. The umbrella has a loan period of 6 hours at which point the student is charged $1 an hour it is late or $20 for a replacement. Billing is done monthly and the charge is sent to their Bursar bill. Think library books... 

This system has been pretty effective for us. Let me know if you would like more info!
