More On the Teen Collection
The new shelves are up and I decided to use them for teen fiction instead of the graphic novels. I think Dan did a good job on the new shelves. I am still shifting everything to even out the collection, and make use of the new space the teen collection gained. The collection is getting a little bit of a make over as well. The purplish "YP/Young People" labels are being replaced by green "Teen" stickers. The collection is also undergoing a few changes in the catalog as well. Instead of being YA Fiction they will be listed in the catalog now as Teen Fiction. Books in the Teen Fiction Collection will now have "Teen" as part of their call number rather than lonely Ts or Ys. I think this makes it clearer for the patron. When they see the book in the catalog now it will pretty much tell them that the book is Teen Fiction, in the Teen Area. Yay! I get to make new signs too!
