[OPEN-ILS-GENERAL] How do you track the use of a library dropbox?

Hello everyone,

We are a somewhat small library, and we recently started using a library
dropbox. I want to start tracking how often the drop box is used. We use
barcodes on our items, and was planning on tracking check ins of the items
left inside the drop box.

I was wondering what workflows are used at your libraries to track these
check ins. I have thought of using a dedicated login or a dedicated check
in station. Since I think I can track these values in the circulation
table. BTW, the dedicated station would be within a virtual machine, to
make sure it only gets used for the drop bock check ins.

Wondering if there are better and/or smarter approaches using my general
setup, besides switching to RFIDs, etc.

Thanks in advance,
