Genrefication

The Lazy Librarians Guide

I wonder if...

Have you ever thought...

  • "I want to get the books moving off the shelves, but genrefication seems like too much work,"
  • "I want to genrefy, but I don't have a para or anyone to help."
  • "Genrefication looks great, but it must be terrible to manage...I'm not going to recatalog every book."

Step By Step Guide

  1. Decide what genres you will be using.
  2. Start sorting the books into their different genres.
  3. Place the color-tinted labels on the corresponding books (ie blue for mystery, pink for romance)
  4. Make the change in the library system. We have Destiny, so we changed each books sub location to say the books genre name.
