You want your users to have more confidence, be more independent, and be able to find the right book. By rearranging your children's collections you will be able to accomplish this and more. We can show you where to start, point out possible potholes and give you a map to the future. Join the library team from the Ethical Culture School, New York City, which two years ago began to look at alternatives to Dewey and chose to implement the Metis Classification System to great success increasing both circulation and patron satisfaction.

The Ethical Culture Fieldston School library team was featured in School Library Journal: check out the full story at Are Dewey’s Days Numbered?: Libraries Nationwide Are Ditching the Old Classification System.
Learning Outcomes

Learners will:
  • Reassess the organization of their collections, so as to better support the developmental needs of their students
  • Understand alternative classification systems including: BISAC, Metis, and Darien Public Library's First Five Years
  • Better serve the students who are not sure what they want to read
  • Learn strategies for assigning those tough in-between books

About the Instructors

Tali Balas Kaplan, Sue Giffard, Jenn Still, and Andrea Dolloff make up the library team at the Ethical Culture School which 2 years ago began to look at alternatives to Dewey and chose to implement the Metis Classification System to great success.

For more than eight decades, librarians from the Association for Library Service to Children (ALSC) have intensely scrutinized the children's books published each year, selecting the winning and honor books for the Newbery and Caldecott Awards. In addition, the ALSC division of the ALA is committed to creating a nation of readers, starting with the youngest. ALSC supports all those providing library services to children, including youth librarians, teachers, families, literature experts, publishers, and child advocates.
