The Fiction collection has separate sequences for novels and short stories, poetry, picture books and folktales. Fiction is collected extensively. The collection objective is to provide a range of high quality material for reading resources and to supplement the use of non-fiction materials in the teaching.

The fiction collection has been comprehensively indexed by subject. Searches by subject will retrieve non-fiction and fiction resources. For example, entering the term "bullying" will retrieve non-fiction items, novels, and picture books.
