"When we took over our library, that is how it was done.  But i found it to be cumbersome and unnecessary for our needs. I can see some advantages but I am still happier with the designation we use now."

Picture books - how to catalogue

I'm going to start re-labeling our children's books. A few questions about picture books specifically:1. Do you label them as "P" followed by the author? orDo you separate Child (0-7) "C" from Juvenile (8-12) "J"2. Is a Child book one with few words, and some that only a parent would read to a young child? When/how do you distinguish from Juvenile if you do that separation?For other children's books (and maybe including picture books, depending on how you label them), do you separate between…See More

248 vs 305 or 306 - where do you put the family/individual person/books

We've made great progress on revamping our library, but I'm confused. I purchased the book A Classification System for Church Libraries and it's adding to my question. I'm making new spine labels for all our resources as in their current categories books/topics can be extremely difficult to locate.In the past, I had placed books on individuals (men, women, marriage, etc.) in the 248 section (248.8+ whatever other necessary decimals to keep them grouped properly). But I see that when I search…See More
