Career Resource Center. Overview: ERIC Fact Sheet No. 7.
An overview of Career Resource Centers (CRCs) is presented. CRCs are described as places where students can go to find career information, find a summer job, or take a vocational interest inventory; where teachers can go to find career education materials or to arrange a field trip; or where guidance counselors can go to hold group sessions, simulate job interviews, or conduct individual vocational counseling. Topics covered in this fact sheet include: (1) the purposes of CRCs; (2) initial planning steps; (3) staffing needs; (4) facility design and placement considerations; (5) instructional media requirements accompanied by a list of 12 directories of free and inexpensive materials; and (6) questions to consider in nine categories when formulating an evaluation plan. A bibliography of two references and eight additional resources, most of which are available from the Educational Resources Information Center (ERIC) system, is provided. (DC)
