Report on Alternatives and Considerations for the Design of a Learning Resource Center (LRC) at Georgetown University.
Henderson, Diane D.
Among the principal insights developed by the Georgetown University Learning Resources Center (LRC) Planning Group during its period of activity was an understanding of the nature of the entire system of learning resources at Georgetown University of which the proposed LRC will be one of the major parts. In this paper all of the elements of the learning resource system at Georgetown are identified and the capabilities of each, at present and as proposed for the future, are described and analyzed. The implementation for the design of the LRC which would be engendered by the various possible modes of operation of the learning resource system are explored. Finally, the Planning Group's recommendations for equipping and allocating space within the proposed LRC are presented, along with supporting illustrations of some of the possible implementations.
