This guide is intended for use in Dr. Gary Hood's Career Counseling Across the Lifespan course (COUN 5370) and contains some key databases and resources students may find useful for their coursework. Please see the boxes below to search a number of different resources directly. Most important, find my picture on the left to locate my contact information and ask me if you have questions or need any assistance. That is why I'm here!


Please note: This guide is not exhaustive and is only intended to help students get started in their research. Also, this guide was originally created for Dr. Gary Hood's Spring 2015 online course, and although the guide should prove useful for other COUN 5370 courses, this is not its original intention.
