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. The databases are in alphabetical order so the student will click on 'c' to find CQ Researcher, etc.

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, 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.
