When Lamoureux Hall first opened its doors in 1978, the Education Library was put in place.
The Learning Resource Centre (LRC) was born in 1995 when the Lamoureux Library and the Faculty of Education's Centre of Educative Technologies merged their services. The LRC had as a main objective the support of the Faculty of Education programs, particularly the B.Ed and professional developement programs. The Center had the emphasis set on the integration of new learning technologies in Education.
In the summer of 2006, after major renovations, the LRC changes its name to Faculty of Education Resource Centre to reflect its new mandate which now incudes services for graduate students. In fact, the RCRE was integrated to the Centre and the 3rd floor computer lab moved to a room adjacent to the Centre, LMX 267
In 2009, the Centre's name changed for Educational Centre of the Faculty of Education.
