The McAfee Memorial Library, located in the Norrington Center on the Parkville campus, provides access to quality information resources that enables a diverse community of learners to think critically, communicate effectively, demonstrate a global perspective, and engage in lifelong learning and service to others.
Our collections include more than 90,000 books, 200,000 ebooks, 20,000 streaming video titles and over 70 online databases. Electronic resources are available 24/7. Additional materials can be obtained via interlibrary loan and/or reciprocal borrowing agreements with local and regional libraries. Park University is also a proud member of the MOBIUS library consortium.
Librarians are available to help with research and the use of electronic resources in person, and also via telephone, email and online chat. Our library faculty offer classroom instruction in research and information literacy skills; contact one of our librarians to schedule an instruction session. Subject-specific research guides can also be found on the library website and within Canvas courses.
The library also administers the Fishburn Archives, located in the Academic Underground, which consists of manuscripts, print material, photographs, scrapbooks, art work, and artifacts including furniture, sports trophies and textiles, documenting the founding and history of Park University and Parkville, Missouri. Access to archived materials is available by appointment.
The Campanella Gallery, located in the Norrington Center, features art exhibits from Park students and faculty and local artists.
In addition to housing library offices, the Norrington Center on the Parkville campus houses the Academic Support Center (ASC), which provides subject tutoring, writing assistance, and mentoring services. ASC personnel also administer accommodations for students with disabilities and the University's Testing Center.
