I just Genre-fied my school library at the end of last year and while everyone at school seems to like it, I have received some negative comments from others the library field. I was glad to see your blog as it made me feel validated. I just have to wait and see what the circulation stats are.

I'm glad you took the jump! I think you'll find that, ultimately, it works for the kids--your patrons. Let me know how things turn out.

I know these posts are several years old but I am wondering if you can still provide the templates for the destiny report. I have made resource lists for various genres but I feel like I am missing a lot of the books for each Genre and maybe your method would help me get there. THANKS
