New Research Guide: Careers and Majors

By Ashley Lierman
Trying to decide on a major? Thinking about the future? Have a career in mind, but no clue what you need to do to get there? The Library has a research guide that can help: Careers and Majors!

The Careers and Majors guide identifies resources on campus, on the web, and in the library that are designed to help students find their way through these important decisions. Browse through to find quizzes that will help you determine what major is right for you, information on what sorts of careers are available to graduates by major, and information on what academic course of study is generally required for different types of careers. The guide also points out places on campus where you can go for more information and help.

Your librarians have been working to build research guides like this one for the Rosemont community, and will continue to develop more in the future. Check the Research Guides section (under Online Resources) of the Library website for a complete listing of available guides.

WilsonWeb Databases now Available on EBSCOhost

In the wake of last year's acquisition of the H.W. Wilson Company by rival EBSCO Publishing, the popular WilsonWeb database platform was recently eliminated. The Wilson databases to which the library subscribes, the OmniFile Full Text Mega and Art Full Text, are still available and are now searchable on EBSCO's platform, EBSCOhost. If you should need any assistance using the new interface, please contact a reference librarian at
