Intro to the LRC
The LRC houses the Library, the Computer Lab, and the Idea Room, and is centrally located on the first floor of the Administration Center.
Renovated in 2004, the LRC provides a collection of approximately 12,000 volumes of books and over 120,000 eBooks. The LRC also includes print and/or electronic access to over 80 individual journal subscriptions, nearly 30 online citation databases providing access to 27,900 electronic journals, many of them full-text, and almost 1,500 items in the media collection. In addition, an outstanding collection of over 700 natural and synthetic bones, models, and laminated charts are available. Publications from state and other chiropractic organizations and associations are also included in the collection. To help library patrons use these resources, the LRC provides access to over 60 web-based research guides that provide research assistance by subject.
The mission of the Learning Resources Center is to provide resources and services that support the institution’s needs including student learning, effective teaching, in addition to research, and patient care according to the mission and the vision of Logan University.
The library is an active member of the Missouri Bibliographic Information User System (MOBIUS). The network is comprised of over 70 college, university and public libraries in the state of Missouri, and provides Internet access to the online catalogs of each of the libraries. Through MOBIUS, Logan students and faculty/staff can borrow books from any of the participating libraries. Logan patrons have the capability of checking their library account, placing holds, and renewing materials via the Logan online catalog. The catalog is accessible from any Internet computer, on or off campus. Additionally, but separate from MOBIUS and Logan’s local catalog, an efficient interlibrary loan program offers members of the Logan community access to books, within and beyond Missouri libraries, and photocopies of articles that are not available in the Logan collection.
Group and individual study facilities are available, including separate rooms furnished with computers and media equipment. Two rooms are designed to accommodate gross anatomy students and others who wish to utilize the various anatomical models and charts. Also featured is a spacious reading area allowing individuals a location to peruse the current journals issues and read in a more relaxed environment.
The Student Computer Lab, with more than 80 computer workstations located on both floors of the LRC, offers both wired and wireless Internet access and a variety of software programs including:
Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint; PowerDVD, FoodWise, Nutrition Spreadsheet, Adobe Acrobat Reader, and SmartCloud EMR.
