The Career Collection

The Career Collection is a small collection located in the Main Library on 1-East, next to the Beaumont Instruction Room. This collection contains current books describing career opportunities in various fields, as well as job hunting/interviewing  resume/cover letter-writing guides, and college selection guides.  The Career Collection materials circulate for 3 weeks at a time. Michigan residents at least eighteen years old (who are not current MSU students, faculty, or staff) may borrow materials from the Career Collection by obtaining Community Borrower privileges.

To locate books on a particular career, do a keyword search in the library catalog. For example, to find career information related to nursing or accounting, conduct a keyword search as follows: "nursing and vocational guidance" or "accounting and vocational guidance".

To locate books on job hunting strategies and interviewing techniques search in the library catalog under the subject headings "job hunting" and "employment interviewing." The latest books will be found in the call number range HF 5382.7 - HF 5549.5.

Guides to writing effective resumes, curriculum vitae, and cover letters may be located by searching in the library catalog under the subject headings "resumes employment" and "cover letters." The latest guides will be found under call number HF 5383.
