Establishing and Operating a Career Resource Center for Adults.
Tobin, Nancy; And Others
One of a series of manuals developed by the Home and Community-Based Career Education Project, the publication describes the establishment of the project's resource center or specialized library to collect occupational information materials and make them accessible to staff members, clients, and the public. Such a resource center involves selecting suitable adult counseling and vocational materials and setting up procedures for ordering materials and equipment, staffing, recordkeeping, and organizing the information for use. Included in the manual are planning the resource center, center operating procedures, and methods of building a collection from a variety of sources, with supplemental information on specific types of materials. Appendixes provide lists of sources for free or inexpensive occupational materials, frequently used books, the resource center's subscriptions, and addresses of material sources. (MF)
