An Annotated Bibliography
by Gertrude Forrester
467 pp. 6" x 9 1/2" 1954 $5.00

This annotated bibliography was voted one of the top ten reference books of 1954 by Louis Shores' committee of reference librarians. It is also on the NEA Journal's list of "Notable Educational Books of 1954."

It lists about 1000 books and 2000 pamphlets alphabetically by occupation. Job titles and code numbers are taken from the revised edition of the Dictionary of Occupational Titles published by the U.S. Department of Labor. The annotations indicate scope of information and the special audience for which each publication was prepared.

Besides the main list of books and pamphlets, other sections which will be helpful to both librarians and vocational counselors are: Part V on "Pamphlets Published in Series, Arranged According to Publishers of Series;" Part III on "Indexing and Filing Literature on Occupations;" and these miscellaneous sections in Part VI: (1) Charts, Posters, and Visual Aids; (2) Choosing a Career; (3) Information about Colleges and Schools for Further Training; (4) Occupations for the Handicapped; (5) Seeking the Job; and (6) Use of Occupational Materials.

NOTE: The 1946 and 1948 editions of this work were entitled, respectively, Occupations: A Selected List of Pamphlets and Occupational Pamphlets: An Annotated Bibliography.
