This AM I worked in the JE section for an hour and a half and pulled 2 carts full of mis-shelved books. I couldn't figure out why so many were interfiled with the JE's. Then my colleague Noemi recounted yesterday's events.
Yesterday Noemi was working in the JE section like usual. Volunteers were helping out with shelving, and nothing seemed out of the ordinary. Until. Noemi noticed that the high school volunteer, Adam, was shelving the J NF's in the JE's. He was on his second cart by the time Noemi noticed.
Adam had a method to his madness. For example, if I had a book labeled J 641.55 MEY, he'd put the book with the picture books labeled MEY for the author. Also, just to make things interesting, he shelved the board books along with the JE's.
