How to Find Careers Materials

The Office of Career Strategy and Advancement maintains an extensive library of legal career development materials for student and alumni use.

The Career Strategy Library is located in the main Career Strategy suite, at Room 208. The Career Strategy Library collection is easy to browse, and current students may borrow materials overnight.

To research the Career Strategy Library collection, use INNOPAC. Career Strategy Office Library materials are cataloged on ARTHUR, the Villanova Law Library's online catalog system.

To search the Villanova Law Library Catalog for Career Strategy Library Resources:

  1. Go to ARTHUR's Advanced Search Screen
  2. To limit your search to Career Strategy Library materials located in the Career Strategy Office Library, go to the drop down menu next to "Location" and choose J> CAREER STRATEGY. (If you simply search by Author, Title or Keyword you will get results for the whole library database.)
  3. The best approach is to enter search terms and change the FIELD to SUBJECT using the specific subject terms used in the Career Strategy Office Library (see below). This will usually retrieve only materials kept in Career Strategy and you will not have to LIMIT THIS SEARCH. (One exception is the Career Strategies subject CORPORATIONS which is also a valid library subject term.) The Career Strategy Office Library subject terms are listed below for your reference. This is also how items are shelved in the Career Strategy Office Library.
