    • B.

    • C.

      Easy Books under Patterson

    • D.

      Young Adult

    Correct Answer
    D. Young Adult
    Explanation
    The spine label "Y Patterson" indicates that the book belongs to the Young Adult section. The letter "Y" is commonly used to categorize books for young adult readers. The author's last name, "Patterson," is not relevant for shelving purposes in this case. Therefore, the book would be shelved in the Young Adult section.

      Juvenile Fiction

    • C.

      Adult Nonfiction

    • D.

      Large Print

    Correct Answer
    A. Juvenile Nonfiction
    Explanation
    The spine label J 597.36 indicates that the book belongs to the Juvenile Nonfiction section. The "J" in the label stands for "Juvenile," meaning that the book is intended for children or young readers. The number 597.36 is a Dewey Decimal Classification number, which further categorizes the book into the subject of animals. Therefore, the book would be shelved in the Juvenile Nonfiction section, where children can easily find and access it.

  • 8. 

    When shelving Adult Fiction, the titles being in order does not matter.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    When shelving Adult Fiction, the titles being in order does matter. This is because organizing the books in a specific order makes it easier for patrons to locate the books they are looking for. It also helps in maintaining a systematic arrangement of the books on the shelves, making it more efficient for library staff to manage and keep track of the collection.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    When shelving Juvenile Easy books, the titles being in order does not matter.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    When shelving Juvenile Easy books, the order of the titles does not matter because these books are typically organized by categories or themes rather than alphabetical or numerical order. Juvenile Easy books are designed for young children and are often grouped together based on their content, such as picture books, early readers, or board books. Therefore, as long as the books are placed within the correct category or theme, the specific order of the titles does not affect the shelving process.
