For my masters dissertation I am researching into how Public Libraries classify adult fiction books.I would be interested to know how Finnish libraries… 611 30.7.2003 Hello! Finnish public libraries use genres when classifying adult fiction. Most used way is to separate few well known genres from the fiction stock. In Kallio branchlibrary we have separated crime (detective novels), horror, science fiction, fantasy, romance, war, humor and hunting (fishing & hunting)novels. Rest of the books are normally on the self, and e. g. translated literature and finnish literature are on the same shelf. Some libraries might use more genres e.g. Kuhmo library. It´s not common to classify the whole fiction stock. Content description and subject indexing of novels helps in fiction retrieval. I couldn`t find scientific material in english. Here in one web-dissertation. It is in finnish, but there is an english…

Because you know so exactly the name of the article you can give us little bit more information where you have heard about it.

Kind of a horror story If I may guess. So we here in the library try to search it from fiction shelves. Little bit extra information from your side couldn't do any harm. With regards Librarian
