Today I took the circulating encyclopedias and crossed out the "Reference only" stamps. Hopefully they will get more use in the circulating collection. They were shelved with the reference books and the only thing indicating that they could be checked out was the label reading "NF" instead of "REF." That doesn't make sense to a child. I had to shift a ton of nonfiction to make space for the encyclopedias, but I finally made an adequate space and a shelf label indicating that they may be checked out. I also made a sign for the reference section to let patrons know where the older set of encyclopedias disappeared to.
