Learning Resource System

Welcome to the LRS: your online place for academic resources.

The Learning Resource System consists of the electronic resources Stanbridge University offers that are available remotely, such as databases and e-books, and the Learning Resource Center (LRC), which consists of a computer lab with internet access, a librarian to assist with questions, and a collection of books available for checkout. The LRC also has four separate rooms that are used for group study and tutoring, as well as a quiet study room with four study carrels.

The Learning Resource Center is in Building 2061, across the courtyard from the main building, and is open every day:
