     Inventory is an important part of any library, but lets face it, it is also the most boring part of any library. Wouldn't be great if you could get a machine to do that for you? In the Autonomous Library Inventory System (ALIS) project, we are attempting to do just that. The main objective in this project is to produce a semi-autonomous platform capable of book recognition, that could be sent through the aisles of libraries or bookstores to perform inventory. Through the use of image thresholding techniques, blob analysis, pattern recognition, and optical character verification, we are trying to give our robot the ability to read.
