A school usually sets up a center which will provide valuable support to the teaching - learning process. Over the years the name of this center has evolved. Some of the names are Audio-Visual Center, Media and Technology Resource Center, Teaching-Learning Technology Department, or Simply Learning Resource center. 2. With the very fast development of information and communications technology (ICT), the natural outcome was the ever-expanding interface between the traditional library and ICT both in terms of hardware and software systems and applications. 3. Schools may have different set-ups when it comes to a Learning Resource Center (LRC). Some have replaced the term library with LRC. Some have a separate library, LRC and Audio Visual or Media Center. Some just have the LRC both for teachers and students L EARNING E PISODE 1 - The School’s Learning Resource Center Page 1
