Floor Guide

The Learning Resources Center is comprised of three floors. Upon entering the building on the Main (plaza) Level, library users have access to the Upper (mezzanine) Level by use of a staircase. Due to security of library resources, the Lower (ground) Level is accessed by exiting the facility and entering the building from the left side by steps. An elevator is located on the Main (plaza) Level for individuals who cannot access the Upper or Lower levels by use of staircase or steps.
