Learning Resource Center

About The Learning Resource Center

With four full-time faculty librarians, a full-time faculty member who specializes in instructional technology, and a dedicated support staff of thirty people, 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 over 100,000 books, 35,000 e-books, and access to more than fifty online academic databases. On the fourth floor you will find the Center for Independent Learning with its huge computer lab equipped with 140 workstations (both Windows and Mac). These computers are available for any Mesa student to use on a walk-in basis. We also offer a well-equipped 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. We are open when class is in session and for shorter hours between semesters.

Whether it is to get help with your research, work on an assignment, study, or grab a snack at the LRC's popular coffee shop, we invite you to come by and explore what we have to offer.
