"When I catalog a children's book I generally look up the AR info from their website and I note the information in the catalog record. No one has really asked to know that info about the books though. But it's there should anyone ask."

Martha Jo Dendinger replied to the discussion 'Bible character biographies'
"Thanks, Susan. I have the non-biblical biographies under "Biog".  Separating Old and New Testament can be confusing for patrons who love biographies. I may just call it a educational moment."

Bible character biographies

What is the best way to catalog biographies of biblical characters?  We have some Old Testament characters in 221 and New Testament ones in 225.  Some have the first three letters of the author's last name after the Dewey number; some have the name of the character (e.g.,  225.92 Paul).  I'd really like to make it easy for patrons to find these materials.  Are there more specific, extended numbers for Paul, Peter, Moses, David, etc., so that all books about a particular person are located…See More
