Language Resource Center



The Language Resource Center is located in room 612 of the Old Chemistry Building on the main campus. The Manager of the facility is Emmanuel Wilson.

For students, we have 30 computers with internet access and 3 plasma screen TV's with access to international channels via Dish Network. Since the computers have a DVD/CDRW drive, it is possible to view DVDs on the computers. However, we do require that computer users provide their own walkman style headphones or ear buds to listen to any audio, whether from DVD, the Web, CD-ROMs or audio CDs. We also have a computer classroom in 727 Old Chem with another 27 workstations, also with DVD/CDRW drives. Students may use the computers in 727 Old Chem when a class is not in session.

We still offer audio material (CD's or MP3's) that correspond to language textbooks (in 18 languages). The CD's are available for individual listening practice on request at the check-out counter.  There are DVD's for viewing in the Lab. The videos are in only a few languages, and they are not duplicated for home use. The services to be described under Policies and Procedures include video duplication or video format transfer at real-time speed; and CD/DVD copying.
