The Discus program takes pleasure in announcing that, as part of the South Carolina State Library’s Workforce Development Initiative, a high-quality customized set of career related electronic books has been added to the line-up of resources. The set is being provided by OCLC NetLibrary and Lyrasis and is made possible with funds from the Library Services and Technology Act. It is listed on the Discus homepage as the Career eBook Collection.
Titles in the collection are focused on such topics as career selection, résumé and cover letter writing, interviewing, changing careers, test-taking strategies and more. Searching can be done across the entire collection and also in individual titles. Through the creation of a free account, users can take advantage of special OCLC NetLibrary features to save favorite titles and add personal notes about individual ebooks.
The State Library is pleased about the addition of these vocational resources to Discus – South Carolina’s Virtual Library. Questions about the collection may be directed to DiscusOffice@statelibrary.sc.gov.
