Find Career Information in Library Databases

The Agricola database is especially helpful for finding articles and book chapters about agricultural careers.

To find information about Agricultural careers in Agricola:

  • In the first search box enter "career OR vocational" to focus on articles and books about careers.
  • In the second search box, enter the type of career you are interested in.
  • On the results list, you use options under Refine Results to further narrow your results:
    • Choose Peer Reviewed to get only articles reviewed by other experts in the field to make sure they are accurate.
    • Change the older date to be more recent, for example 2019 or 2020.
