To piggy-back on Advance Booking:

As a consortium, we like advance booking as well.  However, we have 
libraries that use the bookings module to book not only items, but 
rooms, computers, video equipment, etc.  It would be great to have the 
ability to create different material types that could be booked.  Of 
course, we also need it to work consortial-wide so that every library 
can see what's booked and available.
