The Language Resource Center - A&S 273

The Language Resource Center (LRC) is an integral component of the Department of World Languages and Cultures.  The LRC serves as an extension of the classroom with the goal of enhancing all phases of the language learning process.  Students will find a relaxed environment in which they are encouraged to work on improving reading and listening comprehension, writing, grammar, pronunciation and speaking skills.  The LRC provides support to both students and faculty across all levels of instruction and seeks to empower students to reach proficiency in one or more languages through exposure to a myriad of enrichment activities and resources.   

Hours of Operation: Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, all drop in services are suspended.  We are offering all services virtually or by appointment. For more information email lrc@gcsu.edu.

Resource Collection:

The Language Resource Center is proud to offer hundreds of language resources to GC Students, Faculty and Staff. To access the online catalog of language resources please visit https://www.librarycat.org/lib/lrc.gcsu.  GC students, Faculty and Staff may place holds on resources and make an appointment to pick them up in the Language Resource Center (A&S 273). First time catalog users must complete our Item Rental Contract (located at the bottom of the catalog homepage) before they are able to place resources on hold.  Once a hold has been placed on an item our staff will contact you to arrange a pickup time. All checked out items should be returned to the drop box outside of A&S 273 and will be quarantined before returning to circulation to mitigate the spread of Covid-19.
