To find information about a career field, consider using a career outlook handbook, such as The Occupational Outlook Handbook, available online. This resource comes from the Bureau of Labor and Statistics.
Another great place to find information about a specific career field is through websites for professional organizations or certifications. For example, look in the Resources--Career Info section of the website for the Pharmacy Technician Certification Board.
You may also consider looking for articles from magazines and journals, available the "E-Resources" area of our online library. The e-resources include links to databases which you can use to search for journal and magazine articles. Suggested databases to find information on this topic: Medline, Health Sciences & Nursing (ProQuest), CINAHL.
Use keywords for your search; use quotation marks to search for terms as a phrase. For example: "pharmacy technician".
