Ability to search for patrons by name or barcode from the catalog when placing holds in the client

24

When you look up a title in the client, and go to place a hold, you have to know the patrons barcode and cannot do anything witht he a patron name.  Our libraries would like the ability to be able to look up the barcode from the same screen but more importantly look up the patrons name without opening another tab.

This would be helpful, and if it is also possible to put more than one barcode in the box at a time, that would be great.  Maybe separated by semi-colons like sending an email to more than one person.

This is very similar to one I posted last year "More patron information on screen when placing hold from bib record":

This was a feature way back in LIBS system, and the idea of moving from module to module laterally, not just vertically. It was a good feature that I still miss!
