Juvenile Print Materials


Adult vs. Juvenile

  • When deciding whether to catalogue a title as Adult or Juvenile/Teen, examine the intellectual content of the title and make decision regardless of location and fund. Juvenile material is suitable for children up to and including 16 years of age.
  • The Academic Edge (publisher: Academic Edge) and Key study guides (publisher: Castle Rock Research Corp.) are classed as juvenile if for grades 1-6; titles for grades 7-12 are classed as adult.
  • Catalogue all material (print and non-print) according to the intellectual level of the title. Item level call no. should be the same as the title record call no. Queries about the designation of a specific title should be investigated by Cataloguing & Processing staff (i.e. recall item).

  • Audience fixed field = j
  • The E classification of book material includes fiction, fiction containing a minor amount of factual information and simple concept books. Picture books for children reading at the pre-school and grades 1 - 4 level (up to and including age 9) are classified as E.
  • Oversize exception: E books are an exception to the oversize rules for “Books”, there are no OVERSIZE E picture books, i.e. the Home Location for most E books is JUVPIC not OVERSIZE, see also Home location hierarchy for juvenile books.


  • Picture book
  • Profusely illustrated
  • Illustrations complement text
  • Text ranges from wordless to balanced amount of text and illustrations; wordless books are classed as E rather than J.
  • Typically 48 pages or fewer
  • Generally larger or smaller in size than standard book format
  • Includes very simple non-fiction books with limited text (topics may include: colours, counting, shapes, simple arithmetic, size, weight, etc.). Factual content is insufficient for a child to write a report. See also Concept Books.

  • Beginning readers series (fiction) are classified as E; includes simple chapter books for children 9 years and younger

  • Simple fiction books for children up to and including 9 years of age dealing with social issues, diseases or coping skills are classified in J non-fiction if designed as a teaching tool and includes one or more pages of background or teaching information for parents or teachers; e.g. Gay/lesbian relationships, Alzheimer's disease, coping with death. Simple fiction books about such topics without additional factual information may be classified as E.

Special Occasion Books

  • Applies to English language titles with E and J classification only; Teen titles are excluded.


  • Juvenile books, both fiction and nonfiction, having a central theme of Christmas, Valentine’s Day, Easter, Thanksgiving or Halloween receive the appropriate supplementary spine label. 
  • For fiction, the story should feature the occasion, in both text and pictures.
  • The overall impression/presentation of the book should be that the occasion is the focus.
  • For nonfiction, the majority of the content should be directly related to the occasion and the book may be classified anywhere in DDC.
  • Do not affix the special occasion label when the occasion is a minor element, or, for nonfiction, less than 50% of the content. E.g.  If 25% of the book deals with Christmas and 75% deals with winter, do not assign a special occasion.

500 note:

  • To ensure consistent treatment of all copies, include a 500 note in the title record, e.g.

A (or An) {occasion} book 
A Halloween book. 
An Easter book. 
A Valentine’s Day book.

  • Ensure that the record contains a subject heading for the occasion.

Occasion vs. Concept:

  • Prefer the designation Concept when the special occasion is peripheral to the primary intent.
  • For example, a counting book featuring pumpkins as the item counted is considered a Concept Book.

  • Do use as the first subject heading for these large format E books in the STORYTIME collection: 650 \0$aBig books before other headings as appropriate.
