Library Resources and Services for Faculty: Library Spaces

This guide provides information about Luria Library resources and services available to SBCC faculty.

Library Spaces for Faculty Use

Faculty may reserve the following spaces in the library. We will respond to reservation requests within 24 hours.

Library Faculty Study, L 137 (Capacity: 15)

The Library Faculty Study is for faculty and staff to conduct personal study, prepare materials, meet with students, or have a quiet space. It can also be used for committees or faculty-led groups (other than regularly scheduled classes). Faculty members must be present when students are using the Study. The Library Faculty Study has a large conference table that can seat 10-15 people, plus some comfortable seating around the room, and a computer with a large wall screen and webcam. Faculty and staff may request the Library Faculty Study no more than one semester in advance, by scheduling an event through 25Live (see the Scheduling with 25Live FAQ for more information). If you would like to reserve some of the library's Chromebooks for use during your event in the Faculty Study, be sure to request the number you need as a "Resource" in 25Live

Library Classroom, L 146 (Capacity: 47)

The Library Classroom is primarily used for research workshops taught by librarians, but may be used by other faculty and staff if the room is available. Requests for use of L 146 that do not involve library instruction may be made no more than one week in advance. In the last two weeks of each semester, students, as well as faculty and staff, may reserve the room for groups of 8 or more. The Library Classroom has moveable tables and chairs for students, a teacher station with computer and projector, and four whiteboards. To reserve L 146 without library instruction, submit a request up to one week in advance through 25Live (see the Scheduling with 25Live FAQ for more information). If you would like to reserve some of the library's Chromebooks for use during your event in L 146, be sure to request them as a "Resource" in 25Live. To schedule library instruction, please contact Ellen Carey as far in advance as possible (see the Research and Information Literacy Instruction tab of this guide for more information). You may also request library instruction through 25Live by choosing "Instruction Librarian" as a "Resource."

Library Main Floor (Capacity: 150)

The main floor of the library contains the checkout counter, computer lab, coffee shop, reference desk and multiple flexible seating and open spaces. Events may be requested even when the library is closed. To request use of the library after hours, please email Elizabeth Bowman: ebowman@pipeline.sbcc.edu.
