Career Resource Browsing Guide

Most career materials in our Library are shelved by the Dewey Decimal call number 331.702.  But that is not the only place you can find books about careers.  For instance, hotel management titles often include pages, or entire chapters, on hotel management as a career.  

Browsing the shelves of a library can be a pleasant and rewarding experience.  If you have an assignment that directs you to browse, go for it.  Otherwise, save time and check [RaiderSearch Catalog] for the call number for specific titles. Don’t miss the thousands of e-books on your career interest.  They’re identified in [RaiderSearch Catalog] just like print books, and can be accessed from off-campus using your last name and Raider ID number!

A selected list of career fields is provide below.  Note the call number following the career name and you will discover traditional print books on that topic in the  2nd Floor Circulating Collection. Check them out at the Circulation Desk.
