Learning Resource Center

By: Chelsea Ratterman, assistant editor

The Learning Resource Center is a valuable asset on campus. Faculty and students utilize the various services of the LRC to enhance teaching and learning experiences. Everything from the library to video viewing services is contained within the building on the east end of the campus. The LRC issues a biannual newsletter, “LRC Connections,” to inform faculty and staff of new resources available to them.

A main attraction of the LRC is its Library, which spans both floors. It contains more than 98,000 items, which can be accessed within the library, or checked out with a valid student ID. Magazines and e-books are also available. Some textbooks are on reserve for students who need them. Reference, audiovisual materials and periodicals are available, but may not be checked out. Fines for late books are 5 cents a day. LRC patrons can use the Interlibrary Loan (ILL), where a book, that isn’t available here, can be requested from

another library. The Library Club also meets here twice a month, to promote the library and its services.

“The LRC has a variety of resources for you to be a successful college student.  Please let us know how we can help you. Stop by the reference desk on the LRC first floor for assistance,” Sharon Saulmon, LRC dean said.

When the LRC is closed, there are still resources available to students. Students can email a reference librarian at refdesk@rose.edu. The Ask-A-Librarian feature is available online, where students can join a chat room that is open 24/7 and is linked from the LRC website at lrc.rose.edu

Contained on the 1st Floor of the LRC is the Testing Center, where exams from various classes can be taken. Bring your photo ID, class name, instructor’s name, and test number. Major exams such as CLEP, ACT and COMPASS can also be taken here.

Tutoring Services are available for general education classes. After signing up, students will be matched with a “Live” tutor for such classes as English and Algebra, two of our more popular courses. “Online” tutoring is also available 24/7; where students may upload specific math problems or paragraph drafts for their tutor to review. The most popular online subjects are physics and chemistry. Also contained here is the Reference Computer Lab, with Microsoft Office products and a reference librarian close by to assist with research needs.

The Audiovisual Services and Computer Lab, located at the north end of the 2nd Floor, contains 41 computers for student use. Students can also view over 1500 different videotapes. The circulation desk for the library is located on this floor. This is where you can apply for the OK-Share card that allows you to checkout books from any participating library. The Distance Learning Offices are located here, where you can find information on Internet courses and telecourses.

For more information and other numbers, check out www.rose.edu/LRC or the LRC website, http://lrc.rose.edu. You may access many different databases for research, find out more about LRC services, as well as have quick links to all of your log-ins–D2L, Student eMail, and OASIS (student information system). You must log into a campus computer once each semester to be able to access databases from off campus. If you need assistance with the learning management system, D2L, please stop by an LRC computer lab or LRC206.
