New Tool: Fiction Checkbox Query

Could we get a new Tool added to the Cataloging module that allows the user to add or remove the check to the Fiction checkbox (found on the Title-Bib pane) to an entire list of imported books?

Many of us catalogers are aware of stretches in the past where the Fiction checkbox wasn't employed correctly. There are retro titles and a large number of juvenile titles that need correcting.  I suspect we could produce lists using either queries or pouring over exports (with All Fields) to pit the CallNum column against the Fiction (true/false) column.

Considering that the KLAS web OPAC relies on the Fiction checkbox for the broad Fiction and Nonfiction filters, I suspect we all have a vested interest in maintaining accuracy in the two biggest buckets greeting our patrons' search results.

Definitely one for us to discuss and consider!
Does anyone else expect they would make use of this tool?

Definitely! As I'm doing a lot of unrated books and putting series together, I'm noticing the fiction box is not always checked off when it should be. I would LOVE to have this feature, it would be a huge time saver.

Yes, Please. I am finding so many that are not checked and always think..what if I had missed that.
