Reorganize your library with this New Library Grant!

A new library grant for organizing libraries following disasters or other libraries desiring a quick-coding arrangement. Designing library arrangements for easy access and retrieval according to color and size of materials. Funding available from the U.S. Dept. of Education. This is a radical new model of library organization, based around human conceptualization of information. Newer understanding of how the mind handles organizing information drives this model for organizing a library by color and size of books. The red books sit together, the brown books sit together, and all the tall books sit together. See model training website:

You have to modify this tutorial, since it was created to teach such retro formats as Dewey Decimal and Library of Congress. In the wake of recent sea changes to library arrangement thought, a few changes will make this tutorial ready to train your students and assistants in color and size-shelving. This is the new wave in librarianship. Your patrons have been asking for this for generations -- isn't about time we gave it to them?
