Our bookroom used to be housed in the library itself but is now located in
our instructional coaches' office.  We did a basic bib record for every
title (or better, if we could find one) but no subject cataloging.  Many of
our are nonfiction so a keyword search usually finds what we need.  Ours
are in A to Z order according to F & P level, then ABC by title.  We
barcoded so we can loan single books to students, but we get them from the
shelf and reshelve them.  I have taken responsibility because I want the
collection to be accessible and managed.  It works well.  Getting it
established was a major project, but it has been well worth it to provide
access to them.
Please email me if you have any further questions.

"The simplest way to make sure that we raise literate children is to teach
them to read, and to show them that reading is a pleasurable activity. And
that means, at its simplest, finding books that they enjoy, giving them
access to those books, and letting them read them." -- Gaiman, Neil. "Neil

Guardian. Guardian News and Media, 15 Oct. 2013.
