Copy a Patron Record (Sierra)

A reason to copy a patron’s record might be if a parent’s record is created and a child or children need to be added into the system.  A parent’s record could be copied to avoid having to reenter the address and phone number.  Please note that copying a record does not copy the entire record, but only the patron name, address, telephone number(s), home library, patron type, pcodes, expiration date, and patron agency.
