In order to make it quick and make it happen I reduced the survey to just two questions. Here are the results, compared with the same questions asked in March, prior to shelving by genre:
1. Do you find it easy to choose a book to read?
What a big difference in the number of students who find it hard to choose a book to read. From 17% in March to 4% in November. A drop of 13%. I'm very excited by this! I love that changing the way the books are shelved made it easier for book selection - this is exactly what I'd hoped for.
I think this graph shows that our students' expectations of how genre shelving would help them have been met. 97% of our students think that shelving by genre has made it easier for them to find books to read. Again I'm very happy with this.
