What are those books on top of the Reference shelves?

You may have noticed if you've been studying in the Reference Room in Jenks recently that there are now 3 categories of reference books available for checkout: 1) Career Resources, 2) Travel Guides, and 3) Writing Resources. These books are part of a new "Career" section that will allow you to checkout needed material for resume writing, grad test prep, job seeking, and more. They'll be shelved temporarily on top of the Ref shelves while we wait for new shelving to arrive. This new collection, while made up of many resources Jenks has had for a while, is made possible by our new neighbor the Career & Connections Institute (CCI). We're so excited for the opportunity to share resources and be a source of information for the CCI as they council students on career, internships, and more. Stay tuned for the new shelving and please checkout the material!
