    Does any library have sub-categories of English fictions?
    Can you share the headings?
    Who is responsible for the categorizing process of the fiction?

    My library look like this:

    Fiction - mystery
    Fiction - sci fic (science fiction)
    Fiction - humour
    Fiction – horror (including ghost)
    Fiction - short stories
    Fiction - cartoon
    Fiction - human interest
    Fiction - adventure
    Fiction - fantasy
    Fiction - romance
    Fiction – thriller (includes spy / crime)

    There are many different subject headings for fiction. I refer to Sears list when I do cataloguing but I also make up my own subject headings.

    In databases/metadata, I would assign several subject headings, as long as they deem to be relevant, to 1 title of fiction. As for "Who is responsible", I think the library staff, not the English dept., is more appropriate to handle this matter. Yet for reading level, you might want to consider Lexile framework (http://www.lexile.com/), or ask the English dept. to define the reading level for each English fiction book.
