Life West Library provides an environment where access to services and information support excellence in chiropractic education.
The library supports lifelong learning for students, researchers, the profession and our community.
Library services strengthen the college and the profession.
The library staff develops its resources to meet these objectives:
Improvements to library services, collections, or policies are initiated in several ways:
Study Rooms S and T can be reserved for student-centered activities. Sign up in advance at the circulation desk for one time use, or for regular meetings throughout the quarter. A binder at the circulation desk contains a sign-up sheet for each week of the current quarter.
Computer Lab G can be reserved in part or in whole by departments for staff or student training, and by college administrators on behalf of the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners. Students' needs take precedence. Email sent to both the library director and firstname.lastname@example.org is the preferred method for requesting a reservation.
Testing Center H is managed the staff in the Office of Academic Affairs who handle special testing.
Imaging Lab I can be reserved by student groups or faculty teaching a lab class or review session. Contact the library director for a reservation. Email sent to both the library director and email@example.com is the preferred method for requesting a reservation.
