I have been reading with interest the concerns about separate shelving in K-5
schools.  I would like to hear this same problem address with respect to K-12
schools.  I will be the new librarian in an established K-12 school.  I
plundered around a little yesterday and it appears that the collection is separated
into juvenile and young adult.

Do most K-12 libraries do this?
How do you determine where the cut off should be?
Do you cross shelve books that are on the borderline?
Do you note in the card-catalog where the book is located?

Thanks in advance,
