Derrell C. Roberts Library: For Students

The library staff are ready and eager to help you find the information you need. Good information literacy skills are crucial to academic success and we will teach you how to find information, how to analyze it,and how to apply that information.

Course Reserves

Your professor may place items "On Reserve" at the front desk in the library.  Reserve items are usually for in-library use only with a two hour time limit; however, some items may be taken out of the library or have longer loan periods. 

Several professors have placed Reserve Tests  at the front desk.  Click on the link to access a pdf copy or you may stop by the Circulation desk and make photocopies.

Library Workshops

Library workshops are for students at Dalton State College. Staff and faculty are also welcome to attend.

Workshops will be held in the Wireless classroom (Room 113) located on the 1st floor of the Derrell C. Roberts library.

Reservations are required for each workshop!
