Adding Foreign Language Collection

I am looking for any advice about creating a new foreign language collection in the library. I have ordered about 30 new titles in Spanish and I look forward to adding more throughout the coming months and year. My question is about shelving in particular.

Any and all advice is welcome! Thanks!See More
