[Tagging] How one should tag different sections of library?

I suggest a combination of indoor tagging, like described on this page:


and a custom tag, like library_section=* (or maybe book_type=*, because
this could also be used in book shops).

So a room with children books would be indoor=room + book_type=children. An
indoor area not enclosed with walls and used for reading would be
indoor=area + library:section=reading;
