InfoPlace: A Case Study.
Bosl, Rebecca
InfoPlace is a state-of-the-art vocational education program and special library. As part of the Cuyahoga County Library System of Greater Cleveland (Ohio), its resource center is located in the Maple Heights regional library. Although the resource center has one location, the staff of InfoPlace travels to the many branches of the Cuyahoga County system conducting workshops and career counseling. Resource materials are available at the InfoPlace Resource Center, and computer-based programs for career counseling are also available for public use. This paper, which provides a case study of InfoPlace, discusses the general need for Vocational Guidance programs conducted in public libraries. After an introduction, a definition of terms, a review of literature, and study methodology, the users of InfoPlace are profiled. A brief description of the career counseling process and the InfoPlace collection is followed by a description of the four separate workshops: Career Decision; Resume Clinic; Job Search Strategies; and Interview Preparation. The "Discover" vocational guidance software program is also described. Five figures illustrate the number of client sessions (2/16/94-10/5/94); counseling sought by gender; client age distribution; client employment status; and client education levels.
