The SirsiDynix online catalog is web-based and allows patrons to view status and location of Library resources while on and off-campus.  Library staff will assist users with bibliographic information and research.  Students can contact the library through asklibrary@parker.edu or via phone or walk-in. The Information Services Desk is adjacent to the library for technical assistance.

Nearly 250 assembly lectures, commencements, and seminars including the founder, Dr. James Parker are available to Parker students through DVD. The Library houses curriculum and evidence-based resources through predominant vendors including EBSCO, ProQuest and OVID.   Recent acquisitions include evidence-based resources “The Cochrane Collection Plus” and “DynaMed Plus”.  Access to the Mango language database contains modules with over seventy-one languages.   The Library provides an integrated search tool through EBSCO’s “Discovery” locating resources throughout the collection.
