Library Installs Information Set

Persons interested in learning about an occupation or job can get help from the Coordinated Occupational Information Network (COIN) located at the Allegany County main library, Washington Street.

The COIN System is a state-wide informational effort that contains data on major occupations, their specialties and salaries and descriptions of related postsecondary education and training programs, two year and four-year colleges and universities, national apprenticeship training programs, military occupations and training opportunities and information on high school subjects related to specific occupations.

Those who do not know which occupation to explore can complete an occupational profile, which indicates jobs best suited to individuals' interests and talents.

The computer-based COIN System was developed by Baltimore New Directions for Women Inc. during a two-year period. It is current, easy to use and will be updated on a continuous basis.
