The Multicultural Resource Center (MRC) is a hub for diversity on campus, serving students, faculty and staff. The MRC houses an assortment of books, magazines, and videos on various subjects including issues that deal specifically with diversity and multiculturalism. The library can be broken down into three main categories:
* Cultural Heritage: This listing consists of books, videos, and magazines that related to issues regarding the cultural heritage and history including but not limited to African-Americans, Asian-Americans, Hispanic-Americans and Native-Americans. This section also includes a catalog of literature covering topics on multicultural education and awareness.
* Self Help: This listing contains materials geared towards the personal development of students, faculty and staff. The catalog includes topics ranging from mathematic and physics study strategies to GRE and GMAT test preparation study guides. This section also includes materials on language studies, grammar and communication.
* Reference: This listing includes encyclopedias, thesauruses and dictionaries.
The MRC Library as stated earlier is open to PSU students, faculty, and staff. Anyone interested in using these resources can check out materials for two weeks at a time from an employee of the OSD. Any materials not returned by the due date will lead to a hold on one's PSU personal account. The hold will stay on the account until all materials are returned, or compensation is received for lost and/or damaged materials.
The MRC computer lab, like all the other resources of the MRC, is open to PSU students, faculty, and staff and consists of four BRAND NEW PC's equipped with Microsoft Office 2007 and network printers. The MRC lab is generally open from 8:00 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday thru Thursday and 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Friday; that schedule will vary depending on student employee schedules.
