Energetic charged particles are pervasive throughout the heliosphere with contributions from solar energetic particle events, stream and corotating interaction regions, galactic cosmic rays, anomalous cosmic rays, and suprathermal ions. The Integrated Science Investigation of the Sun (IS⊙IS) on board the Parker Solar Probe is a suite of energetic particle detectors covering the energy range ∼20 keV-200 MeV nuc−1. IS⊙IS measures energetic particles closer to the Sun than any instrument suite in history, providing a singular view of the energetic particle population in a previously unexplored region. To enable the global research community to efficiently use IS⊙IS data, we have developed an online living catalog of energetic particle enhancements observed by the IS⊙IS instruments. Event identification methodology, information on accessing the catalog, highlights of several events, and a summary of the overall trends are presented. Also included is a summary Event Catalog showing many of the key event parameters for IS⊙IS events to the time of writing.
