It may be important to some of the larger systems (where more than a dozen people are using the intranet) to increase the levels of password protection.  My concern is less of a control issues and more of an "oops I just deleted our main branch" issue.  Even adding one more layer by seperating the admin from the normal staff functions might be useful.  Even better, maybe users could be added and given "permission" to access parts of the intranet.  What does everyone think?
Hi Joshua,

I've one good and one bad new :-)
the bad being you're wrong.
the good being you're wrong :-)))
In the members area, you have an option (bottom left : modify user flag 
) to choose between 11 differents actions a librarian can do in the DB :

superlibrarian Access to all librarian functions
circulate Circulate books
catalogue View Catalogue (Librarian Interface)
parameters Set Koha system paramters
borrowers Add or modify borrowers
permissions Set user permissions
reserveforothers Reserve books for patrons
borrow Borrow books
reserveforself Reserve books for self
editcatalogue Edit Catalogue (Modify bibliographic/holdings data)
updatecharges Update borrower charges

Note that all users can't do anything by default : most users are just 
borrowers, not librarians.
