Resource Center

Housed in the basement lobby of our 4544 North Lincoln Avenue building, the Resource Center holds a collection of more than 20,000 recordings, videos, books, and periodicals.

The collection is organized and open to all Monday through Thursday 3:00 - 9:30 PM and Saturday Noon to 5:00 PM. Friendly volunteers staff the center and are always on hand to answer questions and search the collection database. There are two listening stations for in house use and a comfortable reading lounge in the basement lobby. Students and the general public are welcome to explore the Resource Center's holdings, and faculty and staff are encouraged to check out books and recordings. (Photo by Russell McGonagle)
