Abstract: Considers the historical dimension of the treatment of fiction in libraries and concludes that, if fiction is regarded as a resource, library users are entitled to enhanced access to it. Notes that enhancing access to fiction is widely regarded in the profession as unacceptably labour-intensive, but suggests that readers are favourably impressed by an expert system which requires relatively little input effort on the part of the library staff. Describes the idea of a “user profile” and its restricted implementation in a prototype system. Describes plans for further development of the prototype system.
