Library Orientations

The USC Libraries offers multiple ways to introduce students, staff, and faculty to the resources, services, and spaces available to them through the Libraries.  We provide targeted orientation and outreach programming as well as point-of-need resources, including our Orientation at USC Libraries Guide, for Trojans at various stages of their academic careers.

WRIT 150 Instruction

USC Librarians lead consultation style “Research Clinic” Workshops to support students currently taking WRIT 150. 

In addition to the live research clinics, USC Librarians have created and made available extensive asynchronous learning content, including an Introduction to the USC Libraries Tutorial, an Introduction to Searching at the USC Libraries Tutorial, as well video tutorials available to introduce students to the research process. 


Faculty instructors seeking advanced information literacy instruction for WRIT 340 or GESM courses can email the librarian for your department or school directly. If you are not sure which librarian to contact, please select the librarian whose subject expertise most closely relates to the topic of the class. To view the list and contact information, go to USC Subject Librarians.
