How to Search for a Member Record

The Member List consists of individual member records in your database. This topic describes several methods you can use to find a member's record in your database.  

You can conduct three types of searches:

       A last name search. This type of search lets you locate a member by last name.

       A "fuzzy" search. This type of search allows you to locate a member by using multiple criteria, such as a street address, phone number, or email address, to name a few.

       An advanced search. This type of search lets you enter complex criteria, such as workgroup affiliation and membership status, to find a member.
