Language Resource Center

Services for Instructors

Key points to remember for new Lab in room 612:

Due to space limitations, no scanners set up for use.

Due to scattered locations of items and necessity for constant monitoring of Language Resource Center, scheduling and calling ahead is an absolute necessity; cannot run next door to computer lab (727 upstairs); cannot get VCR's for checkout instantly--they are in a room across the hall.

All users must provide current UC ID, including faculty. My workers will not know faculty and other staff
