Adults often return to school to acquire skills useful or necessary to enter or change their status in the world of work. It is helpful for them to have access to materials which describe familiar careers and introduce new jobs and occupations. This annotated compendium is designed to meet that need by reviewing and listing printed and audiovisual materials produced in the last five years. To serve as an organizational framework for the more than 700 materials reviewed, a classification system was developed by means of which each major occupational field is linked to the United States Office of Education Career Clusters. Access to the materials is by catalog number and also by way of an index of occupational titles. The following information is included in each note: catalog number, title, author, publication date, price, medium and time for audiovisual materials, number of pages, reading level based on the Fry Readability Formula (I-grades 1-8, II-grades 9-12, or III-grades 12 on) source, and an abstract. The review forms used, and occupational information sources are appended. (Author/BP)
