Locating Books in the BC3 Library

The BC3 Library has both print and electronic books about career, career path, job outlook, and salary information, and related subjects. They are all listed in the BC3 Library Catalog where you will find Dewey call numbers to locate books on the shelves (lower level of the library) and links to connect you to e-books. E-books can also be searched separately in our two e-book collections: e-Book Central by Proquest and e-Book Collection by EBSCO.

Browsing the Stacks

Books about labor economics, including labor force, workers, and conditions of employment, can be found in the 331 area of the shelves.

Books about careers in specific fields can generally be found in the same area as other books about that field. For example, books about careers in graphic design are found with the graphic design books in the 741 section of the library.
