Located on Speed Library's main floor, the Learning Resource Center (LRC) provides a variety of multi-modal materials to meet the diverse needs of MC students, faculty, and organizations in support of the university's academic programs.
The LRCs vast collections of CDs, records, musical scores, and videos are stored on wall-to-wall shelves. One of the most diverse areas in the library, almost every area of study offered at MC is reflected in these collections.
CDs and Records
The LRCs reserve section is a collection of items professors select
for their students to utilize outside of class.
It's important to note, however, that reserves often have shorter check-out periods and may be limited to library use only to ensure that the greatest number of students have access to these items.
The LRC Studio
A less-known element of the Learning Resources Center, the LRC Studio is stocked with a collection of twenty handheld cameras and tripods that are available to all MC students. To use the equipment simply complete a Camera Request Form.
Ryan Capell, supervisor and manager of the LRC Studio, recommends that students looking for a creative way to complete a project check out a camera and put together a short video. Cameras are provided on a first-come, first-served basis, so reservations are best made in advance. The LRC also has a number of projectors and projector screens that are frequently used for groups on campus, and can be reserved by filling out the Equipment Request Form.
While the studio provides access to filming and viewing equipment, Capell states that the work that happens there goes beyond “just checking out cameras.”
Mr. Capell also mentioned MCTV, a biweekly Campus news program created entirely by students using equipment provided by the LRC studio.
