Blueprints for Building a Career Resources Library.
Smith, Deena J.; Somero, Deborah T.
This description of Richland Community College's Career Resources Library begins by explaining the eight major subdivisions of the collection: (1) job search information, which contains information on employment strategies, interviewing techniques, researching jobs/companies, and resume writing; (2) occupational information, which includes employment outlook information for 13 highlighted career areas; (3) skills for living, which contains information on adult development, career planning, and community resources; (4) educational information, which includes college catalogues and educational resources; (5) Holland files, which categorize occupational information according to John Holland's six interest and personality themes; (6) vocational biographies; (7) audio-visual materials; and (8) job placement resources for the Dallas area. After the library's color code system and methods for labeling and filing new resources and creating index cards for reference books and audio-visual materials are detailed, a list of sources of career information is provided. The next sections focus on the Career Services Division's philosophy and purpose, describing emphases on adult and career development and providing diagrams of the career services model, the process used in meeting student career/life planning needs, and the library's staffing hierarchy. A list of the library's personnel and their responsibilities is included. (LAL)
