The databases that your student will use will largely depend on their planned profession.

The easiest thing would be to direct them to our databases guide (linked below) which can be found on the library homepage. This guide has all of our databases organized by topic. Each topic has its own page. Your students will select the page that most closely relates to their career.

Each page has a list of databases for that broad subject. They should look for database titles that mention vocation or professional development, careers, etc.

Depending on their topic and career, they may also want to check out the databases under our Hot Topics page. CQ Researcher, Opposing Viewpoints, and Issues & Controversies are all excellent resources for controversial topics.

Lastly, they might want to check out the employment data from our government. That may shed light on details of their chosen career. To easily access those, have them research the Bureau of Labor Statistics and the Texas Workforce Dept.
