I recently started working as a "librarian consultant" for a public charter school 
with grades K-8.  The collection, assembled over the past 4 to 5 years by parent 
volunteers, has never been cataloged (no spine labels or dewey numbers) and is 
separated by grade levels, so that fiction for 6th-8th is in one room, while the 
fiction for grades 3-5 are in another room.  I have recently purchased Alexandria, 
and I am cataloging, labeling and re-arranging the books into Dewey order.  My 
question is, for those of you who manage a K - 8 collection, do you integrate all 
the fiction together, or do you separate it by maturity level or reading level?  I 
will continue to keep as a separate area all the "E", or picture books.

I've already pretty much decided to integrate all non-fiction and reference, 
regardless of reading level.  But the fiction is still up for discussion.
