Hi Sarah,
Thank you for the feedback.

I'm using a 20" horizontal monitor (about 10.5" tall x 18" wide) at 1280 x
1024 resolution.
On the Z39.50 Query screen, I can see the query form, search buttons and 7
rows of the search result
On the patron search screen, I can see the search form, search buttons and
21 rows of the search result and when minimized I can see 28 rows before
having to scroll.

I know scrolling largely depends on monitor size and resolution.  The
library staff member who brought this up needs to use a bigger font for
vision and she finds on her resolution she has to scroll just to see/click
the search button.

I'm curious to know if anyone else has had this issue reported and if you
think making the two interfaces more consistent would be beneficial.
Thanks!
