[Koha] Question on Patron Search

Hi All,

I am a student at UBC in the LIS program and I'm doing an assignment
related to Koha. I hope someone wouldn't mind answering my question as
I searched through the documentation and mailing list archive but
didn't find an answer to my question.

I'm using the ByWater Solutions' Koha v3.03 test instance and was
playing around with the Patron Search interface. I noticed in the
documentation that the patron search is supposed to cover any part of
a name and barcode number (ref:
http://koha-community.org/documentation/3-2-manual/?ch=x7264 using 3.2
since the 3.0 documentation didn't cover this topic), but I found that
using e-mail worked too.

So, I was wondering if there is a more complete list of which fields
are searchable or if it's something that can be customized in the
administrative panel that I missed.

Any further information would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance!
