CHESTERFIELD, Mo., June 7, 2004 – Logan College of Chiropractic President Dr. George Goodman, D.C. has announced the official opening of a new $4 million state-of-the-art learning and research center that will provide a valuable educational tool to students and healthcare professionals in the St. Louis area. The new Logan Learning Resources Center will be dedicated at ceremonies beginning at 5 p.m., Thursday, June 10, on the school’s campus at 1851 Schoettler Road, in Chesterfield. Area dignitaries and other public officials are expected to attend. “We are extremely proud of our new center because it represents Logan’s commitment to providing its students with a state-of-the-art library and research facility, and exemplifies the generosity and vision of those who help to make it possible,” Dr. Goodman said. The center and library will provide a wide range of books, video, audio, and computer facilities for Logan’s 1,100 students, and also will be available for use by other St. Louis-area college and high school students, teachers, and chiropractors. “St. Louis is nationally recognized as one of the nation’s leading healthcare and research destinations, and we hope this facility will be viewed as a valuable addition to the area’s health and educational facilities,” Dr. Goodman added. The new center houses a library, computer lab that has 75 workstations with Internet access, and a state-of-the-art distance learning facility with a variety of multimedia capabilities. It also contains a collection of approximately 12,000 books, 260 trade and professional journals with 32,000 issues, 1,100 video recordings, and more than 400 audio learning tapes. Because Logan specializes in health and chiropractic education, the center has an extensive collection of human skulls, skeletons, and other bones, along with artificial anatomical models, available for anatomy and human science studies. Bob Snyders, the center’s director, said the facility has a significant concentration of books and other learning tools that focus on anatomy, biology, life sciences, and other health-related topics. “We hope college, university, and high school students throughout the St. Louis area, that might be considering a career in healthcare, research, or related fields of study, will take advantage of the specialized materials available at the new Logan Learning Resources Center,” Snyders said. Group and individual study facilities are available, including separate rooms furnished with computers and media equipment, he added. Logan College is a member of the Missouri Bibliographic Information User System (MOBIUS), a network of more than 50 college and university libraries throughout Missouri that enables students around the state to have Internet access to the online card catalogs of the other member libraries. Snyders said that students, faculty, and staff from any MOBIUS library may borrow books from any of the other MOBIUS libraries. This can be done online or in person. Books requested online are delivered via a statewide courier service, and generally arrive within three business days. Logan is a nonprofit institution of higher education founded in 1935 in St. Louis. The school is the largest chiropractic college in Missouri and the second largest chiropractic college or university in the nation. The college offers Bachelor of Science degrees in human biology and life sciences, as well as the Doctor of Chiropractic degree. Logan also provides healthcare for patients in the greater St. Louis metropolitan area through eight local health centers in St. Louis City, St. Louis County, and St. Charles County. Chiropractic is the third largest profession of healthcare delivery in the world (behind only medicine and dentistry), and more than 26 million Americans seek treatment from doctors of chiropractic each year.
