Search the Library Catalog


 NOTE: In general, books about careers are not found in any one section of the library.

It is best to keyword search your career and add the words "vocational guidance," such as

Nursing Vocational Guidance 

Most careers have a subject such as... Massage therapy -- Vocational guidance

Tips for seaching the catalog:

    • USE simple words or phrases, like "engineering" or "massage therapy"

  • AVOID typing in long phrases. (See what happens when you type in "What are some developments in gene therapy research?")
  • Find books at a specific campus by clicking .
  • Or request books from another campus by clicking  .

Google Books Search

Google Book Search works just like web search. If the book is out of copyright, or the publisher has given Google permission, you'll be able to see a preview of the book, and in some cases read the entire text. If it's in the public domain, you're free to download a PDF copy. If the full-text is not available, try searching for it in the library catalog or requesting it through Inter-library loan.
