Browsing for genre fiction and graphic novels is difficult for library users and staff with the current organization styles at Scenic Regional Library branches. Genres are inconsistently and incompletely labeled and graphic novels are organized in the 741.5s by author last name. In my proposal, I recommend the addition of more genre spine labels (fantasy/science fiction, romance, suspense) to the current use of mystery, religious fiction, and western. To make graphic novels more browser-friendly, I suggest disregarding the customary use of author name in the call number in favor of the series names to organize the materials on the shelf.
