In Our Collection

How to Find Books and Media

Search the library catalog to find books and other media in the Harold L. Drimmer Library.

To find career information in your field, use this format to search:

{job field} AND careers or
{job field} AND "vocational guidance"
{job field} AND occupations


nursing AND careers or
nursing AND "vocational guidance"
nursing AND occupations

If you do not find any results, broaden your search (e.g. search Education instead of Early Childhood Teacher or Law Enforcement instead of Police Officer).

Enter your search terms and click SEARCH. Click on a title for more information.

While viewing your search results, record the author, title and call number of the item. You will need this information to find the book on the WCC Library shelves.  The call number is the book's address/location in the library.

Most career and vocational guidance books will be located in the COLLEGE AND CAREER section on the first floor of the library, near the Reference Desk. REFERENCE books are also on the first floor. Books with the location CIRCULATING COLLECTION are on the second and third floors.

The general section on careers will be found under the Call Numbers HF 5381 - HF 5382. Books on careers in specific fields may be found in their respective subject sections.
