I'd suggest getting on the Voyager-L listserv and asking for opinions.

Also ask about the "short loan" function. We just had our training in
preparation for migration. Our trainer was explained the short loans as a
British version of reserves where a student can request an item for a
specific time of day. We of course wanted to know why such a silly option
was taking up space on the screen. The trainer said it's a way to have
media scheduling type functions, without paying the arm&leg for the media
scheduling module.
And yes, it is possible to barcode equipment and check it out on short loan

Depending on your needs, this might be an option --at no extra cost.
(I'll refrain from commenting on what I thought of the fees they wanted for
the media and interlibrary loan modules.)
