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. 


Your Account

How do I check out materials?

You must have your Roadrunner card to check out materials. Loan periods are until the end of the semester for students and you may have up to 10 items at a time checked out on your record.  (Note: Media materials (such as DVDs) check out for one week. Reference books and periodicals do not check out of the library)

Fines - Fines are charged on all circulating materials if they are not returned on time.  There is a one week grace period beyond the due date during which fines will not be charged.

Can I view my library account information online?

 You may access your library account via the online catalog to:

  •  view items checked out and renew materials online
  •  check on pending requests for GIL Express and Interlibrary Loan items
  •  get GALILEO passwords

From the Library Catalog, click on the "Sign in" link to access your account.

Computer Access/Printing

Currently enrolled students may access the computers in the Computer Lab or near the Circulation desk by logging in with their Dalton State user name and password.    Each semester, students receive a $15.00 credit on their RoadRunner card for printing.   All students, faculty, and staff can add funds to the Roadrunner Card by:

  • Visiting the PHiL station in Roberts Library (cash only)
  • Visiting the Roadrunner Card Office in Pope Student Center (cash or check only)
  • Visiting the eAccounts website here (credit or debit card)
  • You can also download the eAccounts mobile app to your smartphone (android or iPhone).
              - Go to your app store and search for eAccounts.  Make sure to pick
                Dalton State as your school.
              - To make the mobile app easier, create an account, make a deposit,
                and save the payment info on the full website first.
