Many books on careers in the Reference Room have a call number that begins HF5382.5.  Other books about careers are located in other parts of the Reference Room, as well as in "the stacks," which is the term used for the 3rd, 4th, and 5th floors of the library, and in Government Publications on the 6th floor.

Search for these materials in the library catalog using a search term like Sports "Vocational Guidance" or Sports Careers.
