Savery Library has a collection of more than 70,000 items. The library has open stacks which means students may go into the stacks. The online catalog is provided by EBSCO Discovery, which enables patrons to access the library’s book holdings. The remaining Dewey Decimal items are being converted into Library of Congress during academic year 2020-2021.

Reference books are located on the 2nd floor of the library. Reference books, textbooks, and course material cannot be checked out. Electronic reference resources may be accessed from computers in the Computer Lab on the 1st floor.

Periodicals are donated from time-to-time by loyal alumni or retirees of Savery Library. We are proud to display these donations on the 3rd floor in the magazine racks. If you have any questions, please ask the circulation desk.

Currently, the library has four newspaper subscriptions: The Anniston Star, The Chicago Crusader, The Sylacauga News, and The Daily Home. They are housed in the 2nd floor Reference Room on the newspaper rack. The newest editions are located at the top.
