Genrefying isn't Gentrifying: Curating an Accessible Collection

Feedback form is now closed.
Have you considered genrefying your collection? After pondering it for 5+ years, I took the plunge this spring! Last year's NCSLMA Conference panel presentation from Appalachian persuaded me genrefying was feasible.

During this session we'll discuss genres, print and digital labels, the library catalog, physical space, and keeping students and staff updated on changes in finding materials.

Learn how I got student and staff input and feedback, supported the School Improvement Plan, and combined inventory/genrefying to help curate a collection that is even more student-friendly and accessible to readers who want to browse, as well as readers who have to grab a book for a class project.

Resources will include genre descriptions and labels, Follett's information about "Flipping a Library to Genre Organization" and more (including signage explaining Genrefying isn't Gentrifying - it's the opposite!)
