The document is an index to the Career Information Service (CIS), a cooperative program between the Greater Lowell Regional School District and the Massachusetts Division of Occupational Education. The program utilizes the microfilm aperture card technology for disseminating occupational information in a school setting; its objectives are to provide localized, up-to-date occupational information for secondary students across an entire State, to provide school counselors with current occupational information with which to work, and to provide educators with a teaching aid that will assist them in relating school programs and subject matter content to the world of work. The system consists of a set of 644 microfilm aperture cards which carry occupational briefs; one four-page brief is contained on each card. A microfilm reader is located in each participating school for users of the system. The index lists and describes, in one or two sentences written at a sixth-grade reading level, the 644 careers whose briefs are available in the system. The index is preceded by a listing of the CIS career titles without annotation. Both lists give Dictionary of Occupational Titles (D.O.T.) numbers and Office of Education (O.E.) numbers. (Author/AJ)
