I think even if NB didn't have an open door policy, we would still very
much need locks. :)

This would be a good project for someone to take on:

1) Go through the member shelves and find everyone's name from the label.
2) Figure out their contact info from the mailing list or Google.
3) Contact them and ask if they a) still need their shelf and b) if they
need the full shelf or are willing to divide it in half.
4) Set a date a month or so in the future for people to clear out their
stuff from shelves, including unmarked shelves.
5) Make a good faith attempt to find the owners of things, but for
everything else, chuck it or put it in the hack shelves, or set it to the
side somewhere.
6) Label all the member shelves in a consistent way, including with an
address system, find people who want shelves and let them claim one.

Anyone want to bell this cat? Having usable member shelves would be nice.

General reminder: deadline for getting stuff off the floor of the member
shelves is January 5th, in a couple weeks.
