I am really struggling with these Zoobooks. I will recatalog them to become E ZOO, I think. Right now they are in magazine holders, each in a transparent file folder and loosely alphabetized... I have them in the animal section but not individually shelved with each volume's respective animal. I worry that if I intershelve them they will get lost-- they are flimsy and more fragile than hardcover books. If I don't intershelve them they don't circulate! Grrrr.

We were shelving in the H ARTS section this morning and discovered all of the books about artists had the call number H PAINTER [name]. It occured to me that most children just want to be a painter and would not necessarily know who Matisse, for example, was. We are therefore in the process of eliminating the subtitles and making them H PAINTER, H PAINTING, H MUSIC, H MUSICIAN...
