Recently we made some small changes to how we shelve the large print in one of my libraries, and the impact on issues has been remarkable. Incidentally, it was not my idea, it was Sarah’s – credit where it’s due. All we’ve done is start messily piling up the large print in colour groups rather than all neatly shelved alphabetically. We’ve identified the orange non-fiction, blue medical romances, purple historical romances and pink general romances.
People are now deliberately ordering in to get more of the same ‘colour’. It’s quick and easy to shelve them, leaves more room for the rest of the large print to be shelves normally, and our customers love it. Go figure! (I thought a picture might help explain what I’m describing)
