Library Orientation Requests


The SMC Library is now conducting library orientations in person or via Zoom. Please make your requests here. You'll receive an Outlook invitation. Please respond; if you do not confirm, the orientation will be cancelled to allow other instructors availability for that time slot.

This form is for faculty to request library orientations for their classes. Please remember that we require the presence of the classroom instructor during every orientation. After you submit this request you will be contacted within two business days by the scheduling librarian. Questions or problems? Please contact Bren Antrim by email (antrim_brenda@smc.edu) or phone 310-434-3538.

Please note: Reservations for library orientations must be made at least 48 hours in advance (not including weekends, breaks or holidays). We regret we can only respond to your requests when the library is open. The library will be closed between sessions and on all flex days and college holidays so no orientations will be scheduled during these times. Please plan ahead! The earlier you make your reservations, the better your chances are of getting the dates you prefer.

What citation style will your students need to know?:

Please be sure to review the invitation and if all the information is correct, please accept the invitation.

You should receive the invitation within 3 business days. If you do not, please reach out to the library directly.
