Derrell C. Roberts Library: How do I?

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.

Check out items

Search the online catalog to find items you want to check out. Most books that circulate are shelved on the second floor. Exceptions to this are Government Documents, Juvenile Fiction and films which are on the first floor. Locate the item you wish to borrow and bring it to the Circulation Desk on the first floor. You must have your Roadrunner card to check out materials. Loan periods are through the end of the semester for students & 4 weeks for community patrons. (Note: Reference books, and periodicals do not check out of the library.)
