What happened to the Dewey Decimal system...?
The Sojourner Truth Library uses the Library of Congress Classification System to organize and shelve most library items (Government Documents are a notable exception). Print resources are assigned alpha-numeric call numbers, which can be found on spine labels. The following linked guide can help you navigate our collections:
Your Key Issues Assignment
The career assignment in your Key Issues course will require that you complete a report that addresses three main areas:
- Information about a career
- Information about professional organizations and journals related to that career
- Information about career development and job search resources
In addition, you should be able to discuss and respond to the following:
- What are jobs like for people who work in this career area? What education, training, and other background did they need in order to be hired for these jobs? What responsibilities and activities are involved in these jobs? What pay and other benefits can they reasonably expect?
- What networks might people in this career area use to help with their professional development? What organizations do they belong to? Do they subscribe to professional or trade journals? What kind of conferences might they go to that relate to their work? How do professionals in the field find jobs?
Educational Opportunity Program
Founded in 1967, due to the efforts of Assemblyman Arthur O. Eve, the State University of New York has been firmly committed to the policy of providing access to the 64 campuses and the Educational Opportunity Centers in the SUNY system. Since the inception of the Educational Opportunity Program, more than 40,000 students have received degrees. The Educational Opportunity Program (EOP) brings closer to fulfillment SUNY's policy that "...every student capable of completing a program of higher education shall have the opportunity to do so."
The Educational Opportunity Program provides academic and financial support to New York State residents with a high school diploma or its equivalent, and who do not meet general admission criteria, but have the academic potential to earn a college degree.
