A couple of SDCs asked about children's circ being in 2 groups (children and young adult).
Carlos’s response:
Our understanding of the children’s circulation data element is that it is neutral with respect to age. That is, the circulation number is based on the movement of children’s holdings, not the age of the patron checking out the material. Indeed, the definition expressly says that it refers to circulation of children’s materials “to all users” (see below). In short, there would be no reason to redefined the children circulation element for people 11 and under.

Wording of children’s circulation data element: The total annual circulation of all children’s materials in all formats to all users, including renewals.
