Online Resources Just Got Easier to Use!


San Mateo County Libraries now offers short, easy-to-follow video tutorials that can help you get the most out of our Online Resources. Ever wanted to try out an eBook, but didn’t know where to start? Want to try one of our streaming video services? Our video tutorials can help!

To find our video tutorials, you’ll simply click the tab that says Tutorials to the right on most pages on smcl.org. The tab will expand and you’ll see a list of our video tutorials covering topics such as eMagazines, research databases, eVideos, and eBooks/eAudiobooks.  New to social media? In addition to library tutorials, you’ll also find videos on how to use Facebook, Twitter, Goodreads, Instagram and more.

The tutorials are hosted by Niche Academy, an online learning tool for public libraries. We’ll be adding new tutorials regularly, both created by Niche Academy as well as the library so check it regularly. We want you to get the most out of the many resources you can access with your San Mateo County Libraries card!
