NCompass Live: What You Should Be 'Subjecting' Your Teens To: The Nonfiction Switch - Recorded Online Session 


There has been a lot of debate recently over weeding out the Dewey Decimal System in exchange for a more patron- and browsing-friendly Subject Classification System. Can this really work? What are the pros and cons of such a dramatic change? Join us to discover how the Teen Advisory Board of the La Vista Public Library implemented such a change in their teen department. This session will be presented by Lindsey Tomsu, the YA librarian, and Sarah Kreber, a member of the La Vista Public Library Teen Advisory Board, who played a huge part in making this project successful.
