Library

The purpose of the Seminary library is to be a vital resource for the support of the Seminary's curriculum and the research needs of faculty and students.

The Salisbury library contains approximately 34,000 volumes and provides access to 470 periodical subscriptions. The Alabama Extension library contains 3,000 books. Along with materials supporting the curriculum, the library collects materials about the history, mission, government and activities of the AME Zion Church and the wider Methodist movement. The African American religious experience is a collection emphasis.

The library subscribes to the ATLA Database with ATLASerials and ProQuest. Through  these databases, users have electronic access to full text theological journals. The library's catalog is available off campus through the internet. A professional librarian offers guidance and instruction in research methods.

The Seminary is a member of the Carolinas Theological Library Consortium, which provides mutual check-out privileges to the collections of the fourteen member libraries.
