This study was undertaken to determine what services were offered by college- and university-based career development center libraries and what types of library collections they made available. Brief questionnaires were sent to career development centers at 100 colleges, and 67 were returned. Information was gathered about the types of services offered, who provided library assistance, collection size and topics represented, uses of on-site computers, and workshop topics offered by the centers. Differences in the staffing of the centers and collection size are discussed. A survey was also made of users of the Career Development Center at the State University of New York at Albany to collect information about patron class standing, academic majors and minors, services patrons wanted, materials and assistance used, and student perceptions of quality of assistance. Copies of both questionnaires and tallies of the results are appended. (Contains 7 references.) (KRN)
