The purpose of our Distance Learning page is to provide services and resources to our distance learners that are equal to the services and resources that we provide students and faculty who can physically visit the Roberts Library. Many of the services and resources featured on this page are available over the Internet and only require a password.
This page contains helpful information for students taking classes at one of our extended campus locations or students needing access to library resources while off-campus. Currently, classes are being taught off-campus at our Catoosa Center in Fort Oglethorpe and at Dalton State College Gilmer Center Campus in Ellijay.
