Things You Ought To Know: Learning Resource Center

Posted by iusbvision on March 21, 2006

The Learning Resource Center, or the LRC, is a place YOU ought to know about.  The LRC is located in Greenlawn, room 111 and is the place to let your creative juices flow.  The LRC is a branch of the IU South Bend Library.  A common misconception among students is that since they are in Greenlawn that it is just for education majors.

The LRC can be used by anyone who is looking to make projects for school, work or just for fun. Kim Parker, supervisor, says “If you can’t figure out how to make it, we will.”  They are fully stocked with poster board, construction paper, backing paper, Ellison cut outs, poster printer, lamination, binding, dry mount, transparences, foamboard, tagboard and much much more.  If you are unfamiliar with these materials come in and see what you have been missing.  Clubs utilize the LRC to make their club bulletin boards.

Students can use the mini computer lab to print black and white or color for just a small fee.  They also have a mini library that consists of books that you would find in the local schools and also books that can give you great ideas.  They contain anything from subjects of schools to child development to special education.

The normal hours are Monday through Thursday, 8 am to 8 pm, Friday 8 am to 4 pm, and Saturday 10 am to 1 pm.  However, their hours can vary during finals, between semesters and during summer sessions.  The staff is very helpful and courteous and will be glad to answer any questions.  For more information and pricing you can contact Kim Parker, Supervisor, at 574-520-4120 or find them online at and check out their Blog.
