Hi Sheldon,

You may need to touch upon few files;
Add/Disable (not showing) of search fields like name etc can be performed
in masthead.inc
ideally full file path would be:

then update bib1.att to support patron card number;
then update ccl prop file.
then update the index files koha/zebra index (refer link1).

Refer similar example@:
2.) http://www.len.ro/work/koha-search-2/

Beware, hope you are aware about the consequences, do the changes at your
own discretion.
