Title
Fiction classification schemes : the principles behind them and their success
Source
RQ. 27(1987), S.245-251
Year
1987
Abstract
Attempts to see whether any research successfully supports principles of fiction classification that were laid out by early classification theorists. The research shows that there is some evidence to suggest that fiction classification makes it easier for users to find the type of novel desired. At its best, fiction classification should and can expose readers to lesser-known authors within a particular genre, therefore performing a valuable and cost-effective methods of readers' guidance. Finally, evidence suggests that there is still some confusion over which major practical method to use when classifying fiction: simply marking the spines of classified works (but leaving them interfiled with the regular collection) or physically separating classified fiction from the general fiction collection
