Description Kyle M Hall 2012-04-30 16:52:03 UTC
Right now, if extended patron attributes are enabled, all those fields are searched on when searching for patrons. A library using Koha should be able to use extended attributes without necessarily being able to search on them. 

Case in point, a library has created an extended attribute to store the cardnumbers of lost library cards. In the current system, anyone could walk in with a lost library card they found, and when the librarian scans it, that patron will pop up. Unless the librarian notices the number on the physical card is different than the one displayed on the screen, the unscrupulous person will be able to check out items on this lost card!
