Ermal Garinger Academic Resource Center (EGARC)
The Ermal Garinger Academic Resource Center is an academic unit within the College of Liberal Arts & Sciences that seeks to promote the study of humanities through the use of technology and instructional media. In addition to housing an audio/video collection of over 13,000 items in 60 languages, the Center contains a 36-seat active learning classroom, two computer labs, a media-enhanced conference room, a soundproofed recording studio and a learning commons designed to facilitate collaborative work. We have a wide variety of portable equipment available for checkout, and provide instructors with a materials development area that includes the latest in hardware and software. We also support grant and research projects that leverage technology for instructional purposes, particularly those projects that focus on the creation of Open Educational Resources.
