Learning Resource Center


The goal of the Learning Resource Center is to support the information and research needs of students, faculty, and staff with a print and electronic media library focused on the school’s programs.

The Learning Resource Center provides students with individual and collaborative study space for reading and completing homework projects. The print, periodical, online, and DVD collections help students extend their learning beyond the classroom context. All required texts are held on reserve.

The LRC Computer Lab is furnished with individual, high-speed internet equipped computer workstations providing access to online resources and commonly used software products.

Wi-Fi enables students to access online resources on their own laptops. The Production Conference room is available for student groups to work collaboratively on projects. In addition, the Private Viewing Room is available for student film screenings by appointment.

The Learning Resource Center also houses Columbia College Hollywood’s special holdings and collections:

  • The Grammy Foundation gift of more than 700 classical audio compact discs
  • Entertainment business training videos, including the Filmmaker’s Focus Collection, Writers Guild of America Great Writers Seminars, and various filmmaking seminars
  • The Stanley Kubrick Archives by Alison Castle
  • Hollywood Camera Work 2009 DVD Collection

  • More than 2,000 slides of works of art from all over the world
  • Numerous resource books on film and TV industry contacts
