    = client, customer, enquirer [inquirer, -USA], information seeker, inquirer [enquirer, -UK], patron, requester [requestor], searcher, user, library user.
    Ex. Regular monthly outputs can be supplied, or other arrangements can be made to suit the client.
    Ex. New data base items are sent to customers on magnetic tape.
    Ex. Different enquirers might ask for this subject in quite different ways -- eg, is there anything on 'TV advertising of aluminium pressure-cookers'?.
    Ex. Their effective operation is not immediately obvious to the uninitiated and the cards in the index are liable to become disorganized if inexperienced information seekers tamper with the index.
    Ex. In such instances the attitude and disposition of the inquirer is important.
    Ex. The level of specificity that is desirable in any index is a function of the collection being indexed, its use and its patrons.
    Ex. The system permits the requester to specify up to five potential lending libraries, and the system transmits the requests to these libraries one at a time.
    Ex. Equally, various trade directories and other lists need to list and organise names in a form that will enable a searcher to find information about an organisation or person.
    Ex. Users make suggestions for modifications and these are then channelled through a series of committees.
    Ex. Librarians also provide some assistance with that most familiar and awkward-to-handle enquiry from library users concerning the possible value of Grandpa's old Bible or other old book unearthed in the attic during a clear-out.
