Hints:

Works of juvenile nonfiction should be assigned subjects in this section only. Collections containing both juvenile nonfiction and juvenile fiction may also be assigned subjects in the JUVENILE FICTION section.

"Drama" and "Poetry" subheadings for juvenile works are found in this section, as well as the subheading "Literary Criticism & Collections".

Critical works intended for adults should be assigned "LITERARY CRITICISM / Children's Literature" and any other subjects needed in the LITERARY CRITICISM section (and should not be assigned any subjects in the JUVENILE NONFICTION section). Critical works intended for children should be assigned "JUVENILE NONFICTION / Literary Criticism & Collections".

Use "JUVENILE NONFICTION / Media Tie-In" when a new ISBN is created and this ISBN represents a work (or works) of nonfiction based on a movie or television show. It is recommended that when "JUVENILE NONFICTION / Media Tie-In" is used, another subject be assigned as well.
