I did learn that cheep barcode scanners do not pick up the barcodes as well
as the more expensive ones.  I bought one off of amazon for my 1:1 but
wound up having to use older library one because it picked up the code much
better.     I don't know the specification I need to look for, but the
older one that worked better had a much bigger light bar.

My worry with the iOS/Tablet scanner is pickup time.  The standard barcode
scanner will likely be quicker to read the code and easier to scan books
