It's the blue book!

It's the blue book!

Ever had a patron scream at you, “It's the blue book about marketing! Don't you know which one I'm talking about?” Or some variation of that–the thin red book about dinosaurs, the yellow book with green stripes about building arbors, on and on and on. The New England School of Law has added “color” as an indexed field for around 2000 of their volumes. You can browse their bookshelf by color, or search on a subject and then limit by color. No joking. It also looks like they're using Innovative as their system, so all you Innovative libraries (including mine) could, in theory, index by color. Shine on you crazy catalogers.  [LibrarianInBlack]
