Hmm - what if you batch loaded the new students as a particular permission
group that allowed them access to everything except checking out items, and
then updated the permission group to one that allowed checkouts after they
read user agreement? It would still mean staff would have to touch every
account that was used to circulate, but it wouldn't be as time consuming as
dealing with completing the self-registration forms, and it would be spread
out as they came in to check out items, and it wouldn't even be necessary
for students who didn't need to check out items.
