I think I can, I think I can...
I am moving through quite quickly... 50-100 books a day.
The greater challenge, I suspect, will be the picture and biography books which are, of course, arranged by author... I am still a bit unclear bout categories X, Y, and Z. X is picture books, I think, and maybe only the ones which do not inherently land in the other METIS sections. Babar to elephants? Curious George to monkeys, Olivia to pigs? I keep asking myself where would a child look for this book? Our picture book collection has always been under-appreciated so my creativity will be challenged!
When in doubt, I will cheat and take a peek at the Ethical Culture schools catalog. It has been so rewarding to have my intuition supported and reinforced by the cataloging choices made by those librarians!
BTW, this picture has nothing to do with this post-- we were just talking about the actual length of a saltwater crocodile.
