Library Resource Center
The Library Resource Center of Parker University includes 17 study rooms (each with audiovisual capabilities), two enclosed computer rooms with four printers, media room, anatomical model room, copy room, and an extensive periodical section. The library collection consists of over 16,000 books, archival materials, journals, and other non-book resources such as DVDs, CDs, anatomical models, and online resources. The library is wireless and has LCD panels in five of the study rooms. New resources and library hours are displayed on an LCD panel display in the north building hallway. Handouts are located in the library to assist users with database information.
The online catalog is web based and allows library patrons to open an account and view the status and location of resources in the library. Two dedicated computers for searching the catalog are located in the front of the library.
The nearly 250 assembly lectures, commencements, and seminars, including those with the founder Dr. James Parker, are available to students of Parker University through DVD. Full-text online publications include Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics, Massage, Alternative and Complementary Therapies, Spine, New England Journal of Medicine, Journal of the American Medical Association, and Journal of Vertebral Subluxation Research. The library also purchases journal packages from Ovid and Elsevier’s College Edition.
Library hours are abbreviated during trimester breaks and holidays.
