Aboard larger ships, the LMRC is located in the
ships library and is managed by the library officer. On
smaller commands, they may be located in the training
rooms, central office complex, or available lounge areas
and are managed by an assigned LMRC officer.
Administration of the center should include coordination
with the engineer officer, ESO, training officer, and ADP
Basic LMRC equipment includes state-of-the-art
multimedia computers, Windows NT servers, CD-ROM
towers, laser and color printers, scanners, TV/VCRs,
camcorders, audio cassette player/recorders, compact
disc players, and projectors. Initially provided by NGLP,
equipment becomes ships property and is maintained by
the ship. Regular upgrade of equipment and resources are
planned by NGLP, but the ships operating target
(OPTAR) and MWR can be used to augment.
Anyone desiring to set up an LMRC can get detailed
information by writing to the following address:

The library multimedia resource center (LMRC)
is established, funded, and administered by
Q14. Aboard larger ships, the LMRC is located where
and managed by whom?
The duties and responsibilities of an ESO are wide in
scope. In the Navy, as well as in other services, training
and education are a continuing process. From the time of
enlistment until separation from the Navy, personnel are
expected to broaden their knowledge and increase their
skills. Training and education allow personnel to assume
more responsible positions. Assuming more responsible
positions increases their potential for advancement to
senior enlisted grades and for selection to officer status.
An ESO must be able to communicate effectively with all
personnel both up and down the chain of command.
Remember that most areas of the educational process
involve the ESO. A proficient and knowledgeable ESO
will have a definite positive impact on the success of each
member in the command.
