In the school where I just moved this year, the paperbacks were arranged
alphabetically by TITLE.  Since the library is on four levels, and some
paperbacks were downstairs, while some were on the top level with the
other fiction, I decided to re-catalog all the paperbacks (most of which
were not cataloged at all), and just put them all together.  Several
students have come in the past few weeks wanting another book by an
author they liked--and you know the results.  We are not automated yet,
but I figured we'd have to do the re-cataloging sooner or later for that
reason too.
