RCL Career Resources Building and Construction Trades: Introduction


Discover foundational titles for two-year colleges and programs across the Building and Construction Trades disciplines. This guide features titles reviewed in Choice that are also included in the Resources for College Libraries: Career Resources core bibliography in Building and Construction Trades. Preview RCL title selections along with the original Choice reviews. 

While these guides showcase the overlap between Choice and RCL titles, not every Choice recommended, essential, or Outstanding Academic Title will appear in RCL and likewise, only 10-15% of the RCL: Career Resources selections have been reviewed by Choice. RCL aims to provide a comprehensive subject bibliography aligned with the undergraduate curriculum, meaning it may include books published years ago, not just recent works in a field. Learn more about the RCL core collection.

The titles in the list represent Choice-reviewed Building and Construction Trades selections as of March 1, 2016. RCL: Career Resources subject bibliographies are continually updated and subject to change. The Building and Construction Trades subject is maintained by Robert Kelly, Coordinator of Library Services at Hutchinson Community College.
