With just a few minutes before they must get to class, students often do not have time to mull around or search the catalog to figure out what books to get. They may not have a specific author or title in mind, but they usually know what type (or genre) of book they want.
Hence, our organizational scheme--also known as "genre-fication"--where the mass of fiction books are separated into smaller, easier-to-browse sections by type of story or subject. (We also included "Literary Collections," "Manga/Graphic Novels," and "Poetry" under this umbrella, even though they're not strictly fiction.)
