+New Patron Duplicate Search
+As a new patron is being registered Evergreen checks some of the information entered against existing patrons to catch duplicate registrations.
+The fields that are checked are patron name (_First Name_ and _Last Name_), _Email_, _Daytime Phone_, _Evening Phone_, and _Other Phone_.  Both active and inactive patrons are checked.
+When a match is found a link will appear indicating how many duplicate patrons there are and what information they match on.
