The Media Center supports the graduate and undergraduate curriculum with a variety of resources.  For example, available resources include individual study carrels, open stacks, a periodical and reading area, an AV lab (with videos, CDs, audio cassettes and more), an education lab, as well as open-use PCs and tablets with an excellent library of software for research and personal use. These resources not only support student curriculum but also enhance and enrich the lives of each IBCS student.
