Genrefication or genrefying your collection is an activity that suits some school library communities depending on the needs of your learners. This webinar will overview the purpose, a variety of forms of genrefication as well as some suggested procedures if you wish to go down this path. It is aimed at both K-12 and all collections within a library - once I started in Fiction, I could then see the value in Non Fiction too!
