For many years, Creighton University licensed UpToDate. DynaMed Plus, however will replace UpToDate beginning July 1st. The most recent UpToDate package offered to provide access to Creighton University was cost-prohibitive. DynaMed Plus maintains the following advantages over UpToDate: a three-level evidence rating system, more journal coverage, and visible links to guidelines in topic summaries.

Scopus to replace Web of Science: effective July 1st

Scopus to replace Web of Science: effective July 1st

For many years, the Creighton University libraries licensed Web of Science. Scopus, however, will replace Web of Science (and Journal Citation Reports) beginning July 1st. The primary reason for this change is the efficiencies among Scopus, PURE, and SciVal. PURE and SciVal, research management tools licensed through the Provostís office, utilize Scopus data. Be on the lookout for Scopus training session later in the summer and in the fall! Posted June 19, 2018

No unsolicited donations, please.

No unsolicited donations, please.

Due to the reorganization of the university, library positions have been eliminated, and therefore, we no longer have the staff to process unsolicited donations. The library will only accept donations we need to add to our library collection.

The new donation policy for Creighton University Health Sciences Library follows:

1.     Before offering material to the library, check our library holdings to see if we already have a copy of the material you wish to donate. Go to our libraryís home page and select JaySearch Advanced.


2.     Please provide an inventory of any materials you wish to donate. The inventory item list should include the title, author, and publication date.  For periodicals, please include the title, volume, number and year of each periodical issue. The title and the year range of back issues of a periodical title would suffice.


3.     We will only accept material published within the most recent 10 years, unless the material has a historical significance in a subject matter for a Creighton University department.


Again, we no longer accept unsolicited material, please contact Marcella Dial to make donation arrangements at 402-280-5139 or

Access to building

Access to building

The fences around the old hospital are making it difficult to get to our entrance. The only access to the front door is by walking south on the sidewalk between our building and the dental school from Burt Street. Monday through Friday before about 6 pm; you can access the building from the doors on the south side of the garage under our building. If you park in the visitor's lot west of the dental school you should walk east along Burt Street. Please call us at 402 280 5109 if you have questions as there will be changes as the demolition around the hospital progresses.
