LIBRARY SERVICES FOR
UNIVERSITY OF WEST GEORGIA
STUDENTS IN DALTON
The Dalton State College
Library has agreed to provide full library service
to West Georgia students. Therefore, when you need library materials,
that is the place we recommend (although you are of course free to use any
other library you choose). While the collection at Dalton is not large,
the Library has plenty of computers you can use to access all the GALILEO databases
databases to which West Georgia subscribes, so you can
do all your searching there if you don't have internet access at home.
Be sure to use the current GALILEO password for West Georgia, however, in order to have the maximum access to which
you are entitled as one of our students. We have much more in our online collection than Dalton
The best place for you to begin is the UWG Library homepage, which
has links to our book catalog and all our databases. If you find books you need from Carrollton (or other
libraries in the University System, log into the GIL Universal Catalog
to place online requests to have the
books sent to Dalton for you. If it's journal articles you need, ask the Dalton library staff to assist you
in determining whether they own them, or if you need to look elsewhere. Using the UWG Library's JOURNAL
LOCATOR, you may often be pleasantly surprised to discover that the article you want is available
online. If not, you may request to have articles from journals UWG owns sent directly to you by using our
online Document Request form, or
the InterLibrary Loan form if UWG does not have the journal you need.
Items are normally delivered to you electronically at your current
email address, except for books, which are sent to Dalton College Library
by UPS (there is no charge to you for sending books). Please note, however, that you will be charged a per
page fee for copies of articles which are sent to you;
students on-campus must pay for photocopies, so it is only fair that you pay the same amount they pay.
These charges are added to your Voyager account at the time the materials are sent, and must be paid by the
end of the current semester.
Ask the Reference Librarian at
Dalton for assistance if you have trouble locating relevant materials; if
necessary, you may also call or email
Distance Learning Library Services
at Ingram Library in Carrollton for advice on conducting your search.
