The mission of the Learning Resource Center was to support the academic, institutional, and public service missions of the college. Its main goals were to enhance the teaching and learning process, maintain a well-equipped inventory of media equipment, ensure professionally-produced visual aids for use in the classroom, aid students in assignments, provide students and faculty with increased options for delivering classroom instructions, and ensure that the academic, institutional, and public service missions of the college would be met through technology.
