Random Thoughts: Change, Primary Sources & Other Stuff

Thinking like Barnes & Noble for a long time

Posted on: September 23, 2010

A student in the Innovations & Opportunities for Media Specialists class said her principal wanted her to shelve fiction books by topic.  She wasn’t quite sure what to do.  I rattled off ways in which we’ve shelved series books in attractive baskets or on special shelves in elementary media centers and described the shelved face out “teen lit” section in a high school media center.  Or– the separate career sections we established in media centers more than 30 years ago or the collection of well-used series books on countries shelved alphabetically by country name.   Or the boxes on table tops used for always in demand fiction (saves reshelving) or browsing boxes.  All Add a few large signs or attention getting displays to these kid friendly ideas and watch them smile at the check out desk!
