Learning Resources Centers Support Successful Learning
February 19, 2013
Strayer University’s Learning Resources Center is available to students at all campuses and online. The LRC supports and enhances the classroom experience through book and print resources, online databases, research assistance, placement testing and career services.
Students are encouraged to use the combined LRC circulating book collection, consisting of more than 110,000 resources. Circulating items located in the library’s online catalog can be requested for use from any LRC by contacting an LRC manager or, for online students, by filling out a request form. About 10,000 volumes are added each year to the combined collection.
Strayer University’s Virtual Learning Resources Center’s 21 online databases provide remote access to hundreds of thousands of full-text periodical articles, transcripts of select television and radio programs, financial data, legal findings and treatises, 10 national newspapers, special research reports on computer security and the U.S. government, and more than 70,000 eBooks. The LRC page also offers guidance on APA style, tutorials for conducting research and links to useful Internet resources.
The website’s special feature, Ask Your Librarian, provides research support from professional librarians. Requests are answered between 9:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. EST, Monday through Friday, and are generally returned within 24 hours.
The LRC enriches course support and the academic experience of students by offering a variety of information resources and services in both on-campus and online platforms to accommodate various learning styles and access needs.
