PLA 2008 Day 1: Dewey or Don’t We?



Maricopa County Library District Perry Branch dumped Dewey

Marshall Shore was one of the speakers (there were two others from his library as well)

Customers wanted a comfortable, browsable space – they thought of the concept of third space, and merchandising type stuff

signage – looked good 2 feet away, completely unreadable at 30 feet away

all the staff do staff picks, then display it

shelves on wheels – so you have a flexible space

Extremely large labels on walls -3′ letters!

No reference – everything circulates!!! That’s cool. And the second time I’ve heard that today.

Used the bookstore BISAC system – they simplified and customized that

Customers – 95% satisfied (via a survey)

staff – 100% satisfied!
