Is your concern about a) selecting materials for a career resource room, or b) securing space for a resource room?
As a school counselor, if you belong to the American School Counselors’ Association - http://www.schoolcounselor.org – you should be able to contact this group regarding the most valuable information to include in a career resource room.
If you are wondering about where to physically locate a career resource room, many of them are situated in sections of a school’s library media center (because school counselors’ offices seldom have adequate space!). Your area code indicates that you are in South Carolina. The South Carolina Department of Education has a section of its website dealing with School Library Media Services: http://ed.sc.gov/agency/offices/tech/ms/lms/ This section offers suggestions for teachers on establishing and equipping a media center.
