Library Collections

Use the tabs above to navigate to specific library resources for a career.

To the left are the Student Success Center's collection of career resources, links to outside websites that have career information, and library test prep manuals.

To the right are the contact information for Arlene Burgess, Career Specialist in the Academic Success Center, and Tim Held, who created this library guide.


The Library has many books that can give you information about a career.  

  • search the catalog for books using a keyword from the career (for example, pharmacist or high school teacher)
  • search the catalog for biographies of people who have inspirational careers (for example, Barak Obama, Francis Crick, or Bill Gates)

News or discipline articles in databases can give career insights.

  • It's easy to search across several databases at once through the big red search box on the library homepage
  • The general article database Academic Search Premier has popular and scholarly articles from across the disciplines
  • Proquest News has newspaper reportage that often gives insights into careers


We recommend these reference books, some of which are online, others in print in the reference collection (behind the reference desk)

  • Encyclopedia of Careers and Vocational Guidance.  Reference HF5381 .E52 2011
