The term “paranormal” refers to a broad category of phenomena that lie outside the everyday experiences of most people. Paranormal phenomena are generally viewed as existing beyond the scope and measurement abilities of current science; in other words, they are things that cannot be proven using scientific methods.

According to the CREW manual (10/3/MUSTIE), books on the paranormal generally receive high use and should be kept until worn. It will be necessary to replace lost and stolen titles regularly since this category includes the popular topics of witchcraft, fortune telling, dream interpretation, and astrology. High use and wear generally ensures that a fresh supply of books is available.
