Career Counseling Resources.
Roy, Loriene, Ed.
Part of a larger report on the Four Directions Project, an American Indian technology innovation project, this section includes six "pathfinders" to locating information on college preparation and career planning. The pathfinders were designed by students in the Graduate School of Library and Information Science at the University of Texas at Austin in response to specific requests by educators in reservation schools. The pathfinders are bibliographic instructional aids that outline methods to locate information on topics of interest to a particular client. Each pathfinder includes an introduction that describes the nature of the topic, scope of the pathfinder, assessment of client needs, and steps taken in identifying and evaluating relevant resources; an annotated bibliography of 15-25 resources, including print reference works, monographs, indexes, journal titles, electronic resources, and organizations; and the pathfinder proper, a guide to locating resources on the topic. The pathfinders are: (1) "How To Choose a College: A Pathfinder for Resources Available over the Internet" (Jennifer Payne); (2) "Writing Skills for College: A Pathfinder of Internet Resources" (Lee Bell); (3) "Choosing a Career by Lifestyle Analysis: An Internet Resource Pathfinder" (Michelle L. Gonzales); (4) "Internet Resources on Reading Skills for College: A Pathfinder" (Britt A. Johnsen); (5) "Understanding Yourself through Informal Assessment: A Pathfinder to Internet Resources" (Rex Griffin Pyle); and (6) "Preparing for College: Life Skills. A Pathfinder of Internet Resources" (Christina Holmes). (SV)
