In my high school, I have turned this feature off.  I don't want to be able to tell 
a parent, a police officer, a judge etc.  what books the student has checked out. 

Whether the feature is on or off the data still exists in your database.  It has 
always been accessible in Follett.  The new feature just makes it much easier to 
get at.  When the feature is on you will notice that it brings up data from before 
the 6.3 upgrade so turning it off doesn't erase the data.  If you turn it back on 
it is all still there.  If a judge or your boss tells you to find and release the 
data you are obligated to do it.  The only benefit to turning it off is that it 
will keep others (volunteers, student aids, etc.) from easily viewing the
