One standard way of mounting movable shelves in a bookcase is to use a row of shelf pins to rest the shelf on. The Brusso version of the shelf pin is a very elegant, turned brass pin, with half the exposed pin machined off.
You can either install the pin in rows of 1/4" diameter holes drilled in your bookcase, or first install Brusso shelf pin sleeves in the bookcase. The advantage of the shelf pin sleeves is that they provide a precision fit for the pin and prevent the pin from slowly making the hole in the bookcase wider and looser over time.
This is a nice feature - especially in particle board and melamine carcasses. However, the real application of the sleeve is in bookcases or other similar units (like a living room wall unit, for example) where the shelves are both very visible and moved about. The pins are 1/4" diameter and project 7/16" under the shelf. The sleeves are 7/16" long and require a 3/8" diameter mounting hole.
