I'm not going to the IUG2018 hackathon so I thought I'd share a couple of ideas, for whatever they're worth (who knows, maybe somebody has already done something like these):
• Given an item barcode, give staff information that helps them make decisions on weeding it (if they're considering that) or replacing it (if it's missing or in bad condition). This could include circ count for that item and other items on the bib, date created, cat date, number of holds, whether it's in a series and whether other titles in the series are held, etc.
• Send patrons notices when their account is about to expire and give them a form to submit updated information.
I've also thought about a lot of automated reports like checking for data integrity (does the itype go with the item location, etc.), but maybe those aren't really what the hackathon is for.
