  • There can be up to 3 categories, and at first we were only going to use up to 2, but then decided that if we ever have a vendor generate the spine labels for us, we would use all 3 categories.
  • I have always been interested in why people want to hang out at the bookstore, and the idea of a browsing customer. We determined that our customers want to browse also, and we needed to figure out how to do a better job of allowing them to do this.
  • This doesn’t look like a daunting project t re-label, however I later found out that B&amp;T does there “cataloguing” and processing and that is how they did it. There was one branch that was converting a collection like us, and they were doing it in-house, and it didn’t look like a big project.I liked that BISAC is a standard classification scheme, so it does have rules.
  • Our process…
  • Since everyone wants fiction, mysteries an biographies, we make people walk through non-fiction to get there.
  • We learned a lot in this process: staff learned to weed and how to improve collection development decisions; volunteers learned what we do, and were part of that process from moving books, typing labels, moving collections, and shelving; it took much longer than we wanted, but had patron reassuring us that they love it; we aren’t finished yet!
  • Statistics only show part of the picture.
