How to organise your Elementary or Secondary School Library Fiction by genre - Genrification how to and guide

Organising your Libraries Fiction by genre - a complete guide from an IB school Teacher Librarian who successfully did so.

Writing in progress

Below is the Adobe Spark Page I created for a meeting of International Baccalaureate (IB) International School Librarians showing how I organised my fiction by genre. I am now working through the non fiction. I am still adding to this guide, so please do ask for additional photos or for specific details in the comments and I shall add that information for you to this post and presentation.

My Page

The following guide is how I went about switching my fiction from the regular A to Z by author, to by genre, and also curriculum aligned sections, updated to reflect what work, what did not, and what I should have done. Hopefully this will make the challenge more straight forward for you. Rest assured, it is well worth the effort.

(Being a busy teacher it will be the Xmas break until I can sit down and complete this)

Thank you - Tim
