The Career Information Center Handbook. A Guide for Developing C.I.C.'s in Local Schools.
Holiman, Marjorie A., Ed.; And Others
The Career Information Center (CIC) handbook is designed to serve as a reference work or blueprint containing a rationale and specific how-to suggestions to support and guide the user's development of a CIC that fits local needs. The format of the handbook is intended to indicate the major steps in the planning, development, and operation of a CIC, indicate a range of options available at each step, and refer the user to sections of the handbook containing materials and procedures implementing each of the options. Three models for a center guided the organization of materials within the handbook. The models are defined as (1) Level A--a shelf collection, in a library or teacher's room, which is available to users; (2) level B--a larger collection, in a special place with room for use, overseen as a part-time responsibility by someone who can assist users as required; and (3) level C--comprehensive collection, in a separate location, the full or major responsibility of a staff member with a system to encourage, monitor, and evaluate use. Handbook contents include the following sections: Rationale for CIC, needs assessment, responsibility, location for a CIC, advisory board, materials, activities, public relations, and evaluation. References and supplementary reading recommendations are included. (TA)
