dc.description.abstractThis study reviews the literature pertaining to genrefication of the fiction collection of an elementary school library. Literature was reviewed regarding issues related to reading in elementary school; the advantages of genrefication, including its impact on library users; and concerns related to genrefication, including the potential negative impact of genrefication on library users as well as possible alternatives to genrefication. Results indicate that, although genrefication may be utilized to create a student-friendly school library that enables elementary school students to understand and navigate the fiction collection, there are a number of concerns related to genrefication that might influence a librarian’s decision regarding whether genrefication is the best choice for his or her student population and school environment.en_US
