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 10,000 books, 250,000 ebooks, 20,000 streaming video titles and over 90 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 Campanella Gallery, located in the Norrington Center, features art exhibits from Park students and faculty and local artists. These exhibits are listed on the Park University Events Calendar.
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.
Depending on the date and time, some group spaces within the Norrington Center are available for hosting campus and outside events. Please contact Park University's Special Events Team online or at 816-584-6420 for more information.
