Career and Employment Information Services. How Public Libraries Can Provide an Essential Community Service. A Background Paper for the White House Conference on Library and Information Services.
Layne, Elizabeth N.
This booklet describes recent developments in providing information services to people who are seeking employment, advancement, or career changes. The focus is primarily on the work of job information centers in New York State, where the idea was pioneered by the prototype established in the Yonkers Public Library. Sections discuss the history of the library's role in career information services, the character of such services, the staffing of employment information centers, economic factors affecting service, self-help for service users, inter-agency coordination, programming of services, career counseling, publicizing of services, evaluating them, and the need for job information services.
