Yes, but in a different way. Using Intelliscanner, you actually use a scanner like a library. Through Delicious library you can scan the bar code and the book comes up. At that point, if you have created a file "shelf" for each student on the left side, you simply do the following:
Find the item you want to loan out and drag it directly from the shelf onto the name of the borrower (shelf labeled). The item will remain in your main library, but will appear grayed out.
Click on the item again, then on the loan tab, and set the return date by clicking on a day on the calendar.
A reminder will automatically be added to your iCal for you! For non-Mac users, this is a calendar program that is built in and works with your email (if desired).
Checking it back in is pretty direct as well.
Hope that helps!
