    Report of new patrons and who added them?

    • Article Type: Q&A
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 20


    Is there a report that lists new patrons who have been added to ALEPH circulation and the name of the person who added the new patron?


    In version 21, there's a new service, cir-27 (Patron Record Log Changes Report), which reads a new table (z307) (the patron logger table), which can produce a report of new patrons with the updater's name.

    In version 20, this would need to be done by SQL :

    SQL> select z303_rec_key, z303_name from z303 where z303_update_date > 'yyyymmdd';

    But it is *not* possible in version 20 to get the name of the "cataloger" who created either the global patron record or the local because the z303 (Global patron) and z305 (Local Patron) records do not contain this information.
