The issue is that we have 197 Heathers in the catalog, so finding Heather
Heath is proving difficult - we have problems with Jones and Smiths, as
well. The only helpful feature I've discovered is that we can sort by
Branch and then go to the last page of the results to get to the library in
question. Clunky. Do any qualifiers work in the patron search box?
