YA Collections Update

Good afternoon!

We are steadily making progress behind the scenes with updating our teen spaces. Collections has been working hard at weeding and removing materials in David J’s that are not relevant, don’t circulate well, or are duplicates (and for other reasons, I’m sure). Some materials in certain collections will be reabsorbed into an existing area (e.g. juvenile non-fiction or juvenile biographies) and others are just plain gone. I’ve broken down the changes below:

  • YA Biographies – Gone.
  • Cliff Notes – Gone.
  • YA Romance – Weeded heavily and integrated into general YA Fiction.
  • YA Horror – Weeded heavily and integrated into general YA Fiction.
  • YA Sports/Adventure – Weeded heavily and integrated into general YA Fiction.
  • YA Science Fiction – Currently being weeded. This genre is staying around.
  • YA Fantasy – Weeded. This genre is staying around.
  • YA Graphic Novels – Staying the same.
  • YA Non-Fiction – Currently being weeded.
  • YA Audiobooks – Staying the same.
  • YA New Books – Staying the same.
  • Hardback and Paperback Books – To be integrated within each collection.

This process is slated to finish by the end of the year, and then we will focus on rearranging the collection. I realize that some of the shelves have been very full as of late, but materials should spread out as weeding progresses, circulation increases, and the collection is oriented a bit differently.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Thanks!

Becca
