Because of the growing importance of the sciences in the society and the increasing interest of young people in pursuing scientific careers, the Congress of the United States enacted Public Law 85-875. One purpose of the law as stated in Section 2(a) (4) is "to develop an awareness of the satisfactions to be derived through a career devoted to science." On September 2, 1958, President Eisenhower signed into law both the National Defense Education Act (Public Law 85-864) and Public Law 85-875. Here again the Congress recognized, in Title V of this Act, the need for better guidance and counseling in the public secondary schools. This bibliography of 385 titles was designed to suggest sources from which counselors, teachers, secondary school students, and others concerned with vocational guidance decisions can obtain free and inexpensive career information. This bibliography covers the following topics: (1) Agriculture; (2) Biological Sciences; (3) Engineering; (4) Forestry; (5) Health Professions; (6) Mathematics; and (7) Physical Sciences.
