Searching Tips

The subject "vocational guidance" is a standard term that you may use when searching for books about career information. To see if there are books on your career, try entering

vocational guidance AND [career]

where [career] is the career of your choice. For example, if you're interested in nutrition, type:

vocational guidance AND nutrition?

The question mark (?) at the end of the word "nutrition" will look for all words that begin with "nutrition": nutrition, nutritional, nutritionist, etc.

After hitting the "Search" button, you will be presented with a list of results. When you find a book that you would like to use for your paper, click on its title. You will see lots of information about the book. To learn where to locate the book in the library, click on Lehman College to the right of "Call Number." This will show you where the book is located in the library:

Write down the location and call number. Pay attention to the due date: if it says Look On Shelf, it is available; if it lists a date, it's checked out. With the location and call number in hand, use the "Book Locations" guide to find the book in the library.

You may come across a book whose format is Electronic Resource. The holdings page for an e-book looks slightly different:

To view the book, you have to click on the link to the right of the "URL" field. (If more than one URL is listed, choose the one that says "Lehman College.") These kinds of books must be viewed online and cannot be downloaded. The good news is that they can be viewed from home!
