With six full-time librarians and two full-time faculty members who are specialists in instructional technology, supported by a dedicated staff of thirty people, comprising Media Clerks, Media Technicians, Instructional Assistants, and Instructional Lab Technicians and Network Specialists, Mesa's Learning Resource Center offers state-of-the-art library, computer, and media facilities to the entire College. Our 107,000 sq. ft. Learning Resource Center opened its doors on April 20, 1998 to great acclaim both for its aesthetic appeal and for the excellent support it provides as Mesa's main resource for student learning.
We have a collection of more than 100,000 books and access to more than fourteen on-line academic databases. On the fourth floor you will find the Center for Independent Learning with its huge computer lab equiped with 140 Pentium 4 workstations. These computers are available for any Mesa student to use on a walk-in basis. We also offer a well equiped Audiovisual Department and quiet comfortable areas for independent and group study.
More than 20,000 students use the LRC every week during the fall and spring semesters; however, we have so much space and equipment that you won't feel crowded even at peak periods. We are open when class is in session and for shorter hours between semesters. Please stop by to see what we have to offer.
