100 % of my students report that they have, on occasion, been unable to find what they were looking for in the library... so I recatalogued the collection to a system based on topic and genre-- In addition, children at my school do not learn decimals until the end of fourth grade (pre-k 4 school). METIS, adapted from the system used at the Ethical Culture School in New York, eliminates the Dewey Decimal System!

PB and J or J and PB?
There are two ways to proceed with Metis: the first is to pull the books off the shelves Dewey order and recategorize them in Metis. The second option is to pull the titles from Metis categories and consolidate the shelves as i go.
I have chosen the first strategy and I'm finding that as I recatalogue Dewey titles into Metis, the process goes faster.
